Introduction - International Association of Drilling ...

Similar to drilling fluids are so-called completion fluids that are used to finish the well after drilling is completed. The fluids used during completions are often referred to as workover and comple-tion (WOC) fluids, clear brines and/or packer fluids. Drilling fluid is a major factor in the success of the drilling

Drilling fluid - Wikipedia

Drilling fluid carries the rock excavated by the drill bit up to the surface. Its ability to do so depends on cutting size, shape, and density, and speed of fluid traveling up the well (annular velocity).These considerations are analogous to the ability of a stream to carry sediment; large sand grains in a slow-moving stream settle to the stream bed, while small sand grains in a fast-moving ...

Drilling fluid - AAPG Wiki

Drilling fluids are two-phase compounds: a fluid and solid phase. The character of the fluid phase is determined by chemically analyzing the concentrations of calcium, chlorides, hydroxols, bicarbonate and carbonate ions, sodium, potassium, and nitrates. The character of the solid phase is tested to determine solids concentration, specific ...

How to Plan and Mix Your Best HDD Drilling Fluid

Mar 05, 2018· Drilling fluid additives (bentonite and polymers) mix better with a pH level range between 8 and 9. Municipality water will typically measure around that range, but other water sources like ponds or wells usually fall below. Adding soda ash will help raise the pH levels and make your drilling fluid products go further.

hydrostatic pressure - Schlumberger Oilfield Glossary

The force per unit area caused by a column of fluid. In US oilfield units, this is calculated using the equation: P=MW*Depth*0.052, where MW is the drilling fluid density in pounds per gallon, Depth is the true vertical depth or "head" in feet, and 0.052 is a unit conversion factor chosen such that P results in units of pounds per square in.

Drilling Fluid Systems & Products

When drilling-fluid pressure induces a fracture, fluid fills the void, wedging it open until properly sized WSM is forced into the opening. This wedging process "squeezes" the formation outward, around the perimeter of the wellbore. Outward compression and strengthening of the wellbore Once the drilling fluid is trapped in the fracture behind
