These tests are used to determine the shaker mesh size required to provide protection against screen impairment and quantify the mud plugging index (MPI) to be used on the rig to control mud quality prior to running the screen in the hole.

Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage = SAGD “Steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD; “Sag-D”) is an enhanced oil recovery technology for producing heavy crude oil and bitumen. It is an advanced form of steam stimulation in which a pair of horizontal wells is drilled into the oil reservoir, one a few metres above the other. -wikipedia
