Requirements of Scientific Drilling for Drilling Fluid

Besides satisfying the basic requirements of scientific drilling construction, drilling fluid should satisfy the requirements of scientific test, well logging and borehole log, etc. Detailed requirements can be found as follows:

Evaluate The Efficiency Of Solids Control Equipment

The volume and type of solids in a drilling mud system can adversely affect mud properties, reduce penetration rates, cause damage to drilling equipment, and increase total drilling costs. Efficiency controlling the solids content of the mud system is an important phase of an efficient and cost-effective drilling program. The three basic methods of removing solids are dilution and/or displacement of whole mud, settling and mechanical solids-control equipment.
