Abstract
The technological development in horizontal, re-entry and multilateral wells require drilling and completion the reservoir sections of a well including as little damage as possible. The trends towards open hole completion places additional emphasis on formation damage avoidance. One of critical factors in avoiding formation damage during drilling is obtaining surface bridging on the formation face with minimum indepth solids penetration. In case of overbalanced drilling, this can be donme by optimizing the particle size distribution of calcium carbonate used as bridging agent. The paper presents laboratory data frpm tests carried out on selected fluids which sho...
