  • Searching for the ‘Holy Grail’ of Drilling Fluids

    The Holy Grail is a sacred object … said to possess miraculous powers,” according to Wikipedia. While preparing to write this month’s article, I must confess to some serious writers block. I was sitting at the computer with a few ideas, but no really firm direction, when all of the sudden it popped into my head (well really on my screen). I got an email from a customer asking, ...

  • Frequently asked Questions - Part 2: Stabilizing the Hole

    One of the most important functions of a drilling fluid is to stabilize and maintain a borehole opening. Borehole stability in coarse soils starts with creating an impermeable barrier between the soil and the drilling fluid or slurry via the filter cake (or polymer gel membrane for non-rotary mud drilling such as foundation drilling). Then, positive hydrostatic pressure from having the hole full ...
