Fiber-containing sweep fluids validated for ultra-deepwater drilling applications

A stability model for fiber sweeps was developed and theoretically analyzed, which bracketed the selected ranges of base fluid properties suitable for fiber sweep applications. This model was applied to formulate a mechanistic hole-cleaning model. Flow loop test results showed the fiber sweep’s hole-cleaning performance under different conditions and validated the mechanistic model.
