Noninhibitive Fluids Introduction

Non-inhibitive fluids are simple and inexpensive. Their composition will vary depending on the requirements of the local lithology, type of makeup water, hole size, and anticipated contaminants. These muds have definite limitations which become evident when drilling dispersive formations, encountering contaminants and high temperatures, or increasing fluid density. Each of these situations may require converting to another type of fluid which is more adaptable to these conditions.

Non-Inhibitive muds are subdivided into the following types:

  • Clear Water
  • Native Muds
  • Bentonite-Water Muds
  • Lignite/Lignosulfonate (Deflocculated) Muds
