Performance Report: RHADIANT Drilling Fluid Exceeds Expectations in Gulf of Thailand High-Temperature Well

As reduction in rheological properties were observed after the conversion in the pilot test, it was decided to treat the system with the high temperature chemicals gradually in 3 – 4 batches, along with VERSAGEL HT viscosifier in order to keep the fluid within specification and to avoid any sudden changes in mud behavior. The entire circulating system was converted successfully to RHADIANT fluid approximately 1,320 ft before TD with 7 ppb MUL XT emulsifier, 4 ppb ONE-TROL HT agents, and 2 ppb ECOTROL HT agents. Before trip and logging phase, active system was treated with lime to counteract any CO2 influx.
