KEYWORDS Abstract The use of nano-additives in improving drilling fluid properties in order to meet the mod-
Nanoparticles; ern drilling process requirement is still being debated till date. In this study, nano bentonite and
Drilling fluid; nano chemical additives are used to improve the rheological and filtration properties of drilling fluid
Rheological properties and using local and commercial bentonite. In the first part of this work, the feasibility of using Iraqi clay
filtration as a source of drilling fluid was investigated at 6, 10, 15 and 20 wt% concentrations and mixed with
nano commercial bentonite and nano Iraqi clay at 1, 2, 3, and 4 wt% concentrations. The results
showed that this addition did not improve the properties of drilling fluid and its quality in order
to meet the API standards.
In the second part, a commercial bentonite was used and mixed with nano commercial bentonite
and nano chemical materials (MgO, TiO2, and graphene) at 0.005, 0.01, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2 and 0.4 wt%
concentrations. The results showed that nano commercial bentonite gives the same filtration behav-
ior of graphene, whereas, the plastic viscosity, yield point and apparent viscosity were the same
when using nano commercial bentonite, TiO2 and graphene. The best results were obtained with
MgO addition, whereby the filter loss decreased to 35% with a higher value of yield point.
