Drilling Fluids and Solids Control
Drilling fluids impact all aspects of the drilling operation, including drilling the formations, maintaining a clean and stable wellbore, gathering data from the wellbore, and maximizing productivity of the hydrocarbon resource. Proper selection of a drilling fluid can allow optimum performance in each of these areas. Fluid processing solids control allows cost-effective maintenance of fluid properties. This skill module addresses these topics at an awareness competency level.
