On this week’s episode, host Brock Yordy takes a question from Trent about the challenges of drilling in flowing sands. It’s Ask Brock 164.

“Understand that we are in a fragile formation. We need to take our time and we can get through it,” Yordy says. “We just got to stabilize it, let our bentonites and our filtration control additives do their work in stabilizing the hole, and let our pump move those cuttings up and out.”

In this episode, he discusses:

  • High-yield versus medium-yield bentonite
  • Sand content in drilling
  • Mud density in drilling
  • Inadvertent returns in drilling
  • Removing solids from drilling fluids
