Drilling muds are multi-component fluid systems designed to perform several functions during drilling operation and as a drill-in fluid under varying conditions of temperature and pressure. the use of conventional oil-base mud for drilling can bring with it an associated trade-off in formation damage. for a drilling engineer, oil-base muds control reactive shales, improve penetration rates and enhance overall drilling efficiency. for reservoir engineer, the oil-wet state of the wellbore and filtercake may present a skin challenge.
