Table 2-1 Mechanisms of Fluid Loss Prevention Macroscopic particles Microscopic particles Chemical grouting Suspended particles may clog the pores, forming a filter-cake with reduced permeability. Macromolecules form a gel in the boundary layer of a porous formation. A resin is injected in the formation, which cures irreversibly; suitable for bigger caverns. Vertical Flow Lateral Flow Drill Hole Filter Cake Porous Formation Figure 2-1. Formation of a filter-cake in a porous formation from suspension (•) in a drilling fluid.

The rheologic properties of the fluid allow it to be used in a number of applications in which protection of the original permeable formation is desirable. The applications include drilling, fracturing, and controlling fluid losses during completion operations, such as gravel packing or well workovers. Gellan (Xanthan, Sderoglucan, or Wellan) It has been found that gellan has good characteristics as a filtrate reducer in water-based drilling fluids [515,516]. Preferential use is made of native gellan, which has a considerable gelling capacity and good solubility.

Temperature causes coagulation and dehydration of clay platelets. Polymers protect bentonite from such negative effects. Formation Damage The damage of the formation resulting from the use of a filtration loss agent can be a serious problem for certain fields of application. Providing effective fluid loss control without damaging formation permeability in completion operations has been a prime requirement for an ideal fluid loss control pill. Filter-cakes are hard to remove and thus can cause considerable formation damage.
