... Water-based muds (WBMs) and oil-based muds (OBMs) can be used as DIF. Each type of mud has advantages and disadvantages. Selection of the type of fluid to be used depends on the application and reservoir characteristics. WBMs use brine as a base fluid to minimize the solids content. The added...
