As an added challenge, there was a previous recommendation of 18 lb/bbl of LCM that could be added to the drilling fluid due to the tool restrictions in the drill string.
Summary Summary US California: BARO-TROL® PLUS and CLAYSEAL® PLUS Shale Stabilizers Help Combat Sloughing Shale, Stuck Pipe
As with several other wells in the area, operators on this well encountered issues with sloughing shale, tight hole, and packing off. The usual approach to drilling through these reactive formations is to use oil-based mud (OBM) due to its ability to inhibit the shale, thus delivering successful drilling operations. However, if an OBM is used to drill these wells, a very strong emulsion is often formed that restricts production.

An operator intended to develop a low pressure gas reservoir in a sandstone formation and the reservoir had been depleted by previous production. The fracture gradient, already low in the virgin reservoir, was anticipated to be significantly reduced. Lost circulation and formation damage were recognized as significant drilling hazards. A low density drilling fluid was required to drill and complete the low pressure environment.
