This paper covers actual instances of how the service reduced potential NPT/ILT through identified and mitigated issues related to real time hole cleaning, drilling and hydraulics optimization, correct hole volume for cementing, and in some extend the effectiveness and efficiency of viscous pill for stuck pipe avoidance in horizontal and extended reach wells.
