Drilling/completion fluids

This paper discusses the results of extensive laboratory tests used for the customization of a reservoir drill-in fluid and a delayed breaker—and their field performance—for two deepwater gas-injector wells.
Against a backdrop of global uncertainty and challenging economics, well integrity subject-matter experts have continued to prioritize human and environmental safety in production while pivoting their skills toward areas of growing importance such as carbon capture and sequestration. New technologies and simulation methods have allowed the authors of the three SPE pap…
Recent developments in drilling-systems automation provide a multitude of opportunities to have real-time monitoring of drilling-fluid properties and early diagnosis of drilling-fluid-related complications that might arise while drilling. Coupled with closed-loop control of surface and downhole drilling-fluid properties, automated monitoring of fluid properties would …
