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

Publication Date: 09/30/2016

An operator was drilling the horizontal section of Kuwait’s first dual-lateral well completed with inflow control devices (ICDs) and swellable packers. Due to reactive shale in the formation, the operator needed a nonaqueous drilling fluid. In addition, this new type of completion required a filtercake that could be removed without harsh acids or damaging solvent treatments.
