Tech Report: FLOPRO NT Fluid Prevents Formation Damage While Drilling Challenging Slavetskoye Field Wells

Drill-in fluid system inhibits mud losses and formation damage, overcoming low pressure, high permeability, and swelling clays

FLOPRO NT Fluid Prevents Formation Damage While Drilling Challenging Slavetskoye Field Wells

Publication Date: 09/27/2016

Due to abnormally low formation pressure and high permeability, wells in the Slavetskoye field are subject to extreme mud losses that can lead to irreversible formation damage—sometimes even causing the operator to lose the well. After reviewing core samples and drilling case histories, the operator sought a reservoir drill-in fluid (RDF) that would inhibit clay swelling, combat mud losses, and prevent formation damage while drilling.
