ISO 10416:2002

Petroleum and natural gas industries -- Drilling fluids -- Laboratory testing

ISO 10416:2002 provides procedures for the laboratory testing of both drilling fluid materials and drilling fluid physical, chemical and performance properties. It is applicable to both water-based and oil-based drilling fluids, as well as the base or make-up fluid.

It is not intended as a detailed manual on drilling fluid control procedures. Recommendations regarding agitation and testing temperature are presented because the agitation history and temperature have a profound effect on drilling fluid properties.
