SURFACE AREA APPROACH KEY TO BOREHOLE STABILITY

Roy D. Wilcox Baroid Drilling Fluids Inc. Houston Clay stability models based on surface-area, equilibrium water-content pressure relationships,' and electric double-layer' theory can successfully characterize borehole stability problems. Because borehole problems are complex, a total systems approach to their solution is required.
