Two Aplication Of Solids Remove For Drilling Optimization to Overcome High Torque

Fine solids resultDrilling optimizationed from formation cuttings were contaminants that mostly caused unstable mud performance. Combination of batch drilling sequence and unsuitable solids removal treatment, led to fine particle accumulation. This is one of the root causes of excessive torque and high ECD throughout the drilling operation.

From drilling fluid properties point of view, it is beneficial to minimize drilled solids content. This can be achieved by mechanical treatment, chemical treatment, dilution, and/or mixing new mud. All the above methods, will lead to additional cost impact. Thus, utilization of proper solids removal was required to balance between mechanical treatment and dilution method to reduce solids at acceptable cost.
