Ultra-Low-Invasion Fluid Technology Enables Enhanced Drilling, Reduced Formation Damage. New Technology Addresses Prevention of Wellbore Instability for Larger Fractures

An ultra-low-invasion drilling fluid technology (ULIFT) has been developed to deposit a thin, impermeable barrier over the pores and microfractures of weak, underpressured, and otherwise troublesome formations to maintain wellbore stability and reduce formation damage.
