Summary Summary Qatar: Engineered PERFORMADRIL® Fluid System with BARACARB® Bridging Agents Helped Save 3 Days of Rig Time and $4M
Qatar Shell Services Company (QSSC ) was planning to drill and core an 8½” reservoir section in an exploration well in the Pre-Khuff formation. The primary target was the Jauf Reservoir, and the Unayzah Reservoir was the secondary target. QSSC was seeking an environmentally-friendly fluid system that could help minimize formation damage and provide optimum shale inhibition for increased wellbore stability over an extended period of time during well logging. As an added challenge, the expected temperature in the reservoir section was expected to be 300°F.

Summary Summary Colombia: Customized Shale Control Sweeps Prevent Instability in Reservoir, Saves $80K in Rig Time
Most horizontal oil wells in the Castilla field are drilled using a geo-navigational technique that improves hydrocarbon recovery, but also brings wellbore stability challenges. The operator had experienced pack off incidents with both the bottomhole assembly (BHA) and the liner due to exposure to reactive shale. To avoid damaging the reservoir, the proposed treatment had to be applied very precisely.
Summary Summary Saudi Arabia: Inhibitive HYDRO-GUARD® System and Engineered Lost Circulation Blend Save 5 Days in Complex Wellbore
Multiple severe loss zones were encountered on offset wells, ranging in depth from 5,100 ft to near total depth at approximately 9,500 ft total vertical depth (TVD). Heavy lost circulation material (LCM) treatments and cement plugs were only partially effective in reducing losses. The complex wellbore also presented potential issues with swelling shale, gas/salt water influxes and differential sticking, all of which had been observed on offsets.

Summary Summary Qatar: N-FLOW™ 325 Filter Cake Breaker Applied in Long Reservoir Helps Increase Production 75%
The operator wanted to stimulate the entire 3,741 m length of the reservoir by placing N-FLOW™ 325 filter cake breaker 325 inside the 8-1/2-in. open hole from 6,041 m to 4,923 m and inside the 6-5/8-in. perforated liner back to 2,300 m. Based on the Baroid global database, this would be the largest N-FLOW application performed to date. The calculated required volume was 159 m3 (1,000 bbl), including 10% excess, to stimulate 3,741 m of hole.
Summary Summary BaraShield®-664 lost circulation material (LCM) helps operator drill through severe loss zone, saves USD 227,000 and 2 1/2 days
The Baroid team recommended treating the active mud system with 10 ppb of BaraShield®-664 LCM, prior to drilling into the Rival formation.
Summary Summary Argentina: OXYGON™ Oxygen Scavenger Helped Reduce Corrosion in Deep Vertical Wells
A combination of high fluid densities, deep wells and elevated bottom hole temperatures proved to create a corrosive environment for the operator’s rented drillpipe. Although general corrosion was controlled down to very acceptable rates, signs of pitting corrosion were observed on corrosion rings. Pitting corrosion is an extremely localized form of attack which can rapidly perforate metal. Pitting can be far more damaging than general surface corrosion.
