Eco-friendly drilling fluid water loss controlling agents

Ainul Abbas S


The water loss from the drilling fluid with the addition natural additives like bagasse, natural sugar, natural rubber was studied. The entire study is focused on improving the quality of controlling fluid loss with effect of natural additives. The concentrations of the additives were changed to achieve the desired reasonable value of fluid loss with the help of high pressure and high temperature (HPHT) filter press which worked at the condition of 500 psi and at 300oF temperature. Rheology and various tests of these different samples was studied, and the result is tabulated in this article.
