FOCUS, a brand new name in drilling fluids management.

Following the merger of Calgary-based Performance Fluid Management and Aberdeen headquartered QTEC Energy Services, FOCUS brings together the knowledge and expertise of these two established businesses.

By combining their skills in drilling fluid systems optimisation to form FOCUS, we can offer a greater depth of service to our clients. Our service is comprehensive and unbiased, as we put the needs of our clients first. Working together, we aim to eliminate surface spills, reduce operators’ costs and ensure regulatory compliance over the whole life-cycle of a well.

Working Together

As an integral member of our customers’ drilling team, applying best practice, we provide a trustworthy and independent service that saves clients’ money and keeps them within legal limits.



The services we deliver aim to make a positive, long-term impact on all our clients’ operations. FOCUS specialises in the independent management of the entire drilling fluids package: mud, solids control and environmental waste management and containment under a single plan. Our business offers a high level of expertise, for both onshore and offshore drilling, giving our customers a competitive advantage by optimising the entire drilling process. This leads to lower operational costs and reductions in Non Productive Time (NPT).

From permitting to exploration, development and production, we support our clients over the whole life-cycle of their wells on a global basis.

Continually Improving Operations

Our Approach

Our specialists work alongside rig personnel and management as an integral part of their drilling team.

In conjunction with the on board team, our engineers will implement their findings and work to:

  • Improve fluids performance
  • Eliminate surface spills
  • Reduce costs and waste
  • Ensure regulatory compliance.

Around the world, upstream E&P operators, from multinationals to small independents and turnkey contractors, have realised the benefits that our services deliver and value the peace of mind that our engineers provide.
