Technical Papers Description
The MudLabs ™ Fluid/Solids Control Management Program utilizes Particle Size Analysis in conjunction with drilling fluid testing to monitor and subsequently optimize solids control, drilling fluids, and waste management to significantly lowering drilling costs.
The Digital Oil Field for Improved Management and Optimization of Drilling Fluids Lab and field tests have proven by not efficiently removing low gravity solids (LGS) result in:
➢ Reduced Rate of Penetration by the drilling bit (ROP)
➢ Torque and Drag Issues with the drill pipe and drill bit
➢ Tubular and Pump Wear (surface and downhole)
➢ Problems associated with fluid properties.
➢ Increased disposal cost for associated waste volumes
➢ Stuck Pipe and Loss of Circulation.
