Well Ha3-H3 is a horizontal well with four laterals connected to one main well bore, the so-called "fish bone-like" multilateral well. The main well bore, completed at 2, 994 m, has a maximum well angle of 95.72, a horizontal displacement of 1, 016.73 m, and a horizontal section length of 650 m. The maximum length of the four lateral sections is 180 m, while the minimum is 100 m. Polymer drilling fluid and oil-in-water drilling fluids were used in this well. Field application shows that the fluids used is inhibitive enough in preventing downhole troubles related to water sensitive rocks, such as mud-making and bit balling. Electric logging and cementing job were conducted successfully. Using a 8 mm oil bean, the well has production rate of 44 t/d oil and 15, 000 m3/d natural gas, 15 times that of offset wells.

Weighting agent is the important factor affecting the wall building property of ultra-high density water based drilling fluid. The sedimentation and hydration of weighting agents are the important factors affecting the wall building property of ultra-high density water-base drilling fluid. A technical method, involving the use of a special treating-agent which can absorb on the surface of weighting agents and increase the zeta potential and hydratability, is proposed. A wetting and dispersing agent GR is developed, which can increase the zeta potential of weighting agents, and improving the sedimentation stability and wall building property of ultra-high density water based drilling fluid.

Based on colloid chemistry and microscopic fluid mechanics, the mechanisms of dispersion stability and rheology of water base solid suspension emulsion are analyzed in this paper. A technical idea is developed that increasing the surface repulsion of weighting materials by some special absorption agents to improve stability and rheology of high-density drilling fluid. The experimental results show that GR, a lubricating and dispersing agent, can increase the Zeta surface potential and improve stability and rtheology of high-density drilling fluid. By using the critical agent GR, a water-base drilling fluid system with a density of 2.80 g/cm 3 is developed which verifies the feasibility of the technology.
