Paper Number: OMC-2017-746
... monitoring devices, if installed on rig site, could give significant contribution to successfully reach planned targets. Direct and rapid measurements on drilling fluids characteristics allow to evaluate the deviation from planned baseline and take immediate actions to recover optimum drilling condition...

... to consistent trends of increased rates of penetration (ROP), reduced stick-slip, and improved wellbore stability. This paper verifies that the novel polyglycerol acts as a water-activity control agent and functions better than a calcium chloride invert-emulsion drilling fluid. This water activity control...

... Abstract A significant function of drilling fluids is reduction of frictional forces between the wellbore and the drill string. New techniques in drilling and completions are being used to drill horizontal wells in unconventional resources. Because these frictional forces can potentially limit...

... performance water based drilling fluids as an integral part of the solution. Drilling in Egypt has been challenging with many extended reach wells through highly water sensitive shale formations, and with a high potential for losses. These wells are often at temperatures exceeding 300F. This has, previously...
