Abstract
A drilling study was carried out, testing two rotational speed levels, two diamond bit grade levels, and four flushing agents (including water as control). The lower speed and higher thrust yielded faster penetration rates over those of the higher speed/lower thrust combination. Comparison of all low-speed/high- thrust groups of tests shows that the nonionic surfactant produced a 35-percent overall average increase over water, the anionic a 29- percent increase, and the cationic a 28-percent increase. These increases in penetration rates resulted in a 22- to 26-percent reduction in cost over flushing with water alone.
