CUTPOINT, Inc: The Authority in Solids Control

Visible Bottom-Line Savings for Multi-Rig Operations

solids control


Cutpoint applies the tools and technique of business analytics to eliminate guesswork when it comes to selecting solids control and drilling waste management processes. If drilling wells at absolute minimum cost is important, why overlook backyard operations? Cutpoint helps drilling managers make confident fact based decisions leading to operational excellence and real cost savings. Feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss.

Our solids control consultants introduce significant – and immediately visible – cost reductions in drilling mud losses and waste management. Services include coaching, evaluation of solids control practices, writing procedures & requests for proposals (RFP’s), and bottom line cost reductions.



Send your Rig Superintendents to our training so that he or she will make a more informed decision about hiring solids control and avoid paying too much. Our 2-day training includes lab work and economics of solids control. Topics include safety, how to read a mud report, costs vs. benefits and much more.


Download Our Dilution Calculator App

iPhone using Dilution Calculator app“Dilution Calc” provides a quick and simple means to estimate base oil dilution requirements for a drilling interval based on well geometry, solids removal efficiency, LGS concentration in the drill mud, and the volume of mud lost with cuttings.
