API RP 13B-1: FOURTH EDITION; ISO 10414-1:2008 Adoption; ERTA 1: August 2014
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This part of ISO 10414 provides standard procedures for determining the following characteristics of water-based drilling fluids:
a) drilling fluid density (mud weight);
b) viscosity and gel strength;
d) water, oil and solids contents;
e) sand content;
f) methylene blue capacity;
h) alkalinity and lime content;
i) chloride content;
j) total hardness as calcium.
Annexes A through K provide additional test methods which may be used for
— chemical analysis for calcium, magnesium, calcium sulfate, sulfide, carbonate and potassium;
— determination of shear strength;
— determination of resistivity;
— removal of air;
— drill-pipe corrosion monitoring;
— sampling, inspection and rejection;
— rig-site sampling;
— calibration and verification of glassware, thermometers, viscometers, retort-kit cup and drilling-fluid balances;
— permeability-plugging testing at high temperature and high pressure for two types of equipment;
— example of a report form for water-based drilling fluid.
