Abstract: This project is explaining a laboratory development of a solid free drilling fluid formula that could be potentially used in tight gas reservoirs. The configuration of the weak gel fluid WGL-1, which is resistant to high temperature and high salt, was tested, and concluded that its gelling properties, salt and temperature resistance, and environmental protection were all in line with industry requirements. The final drilling fluid formula was developed as: water + (0.3 ~ 0.5 ) NaOH + 5 KCl + 2 WGL-1 + 5 NaCl + (1.0 ~ 2.0 ) HBFR Anti-high temperature fluid loss agent + 2 Polyol + (1.5 ~ 2.0 ) SDL-1 Lubricant + 0.4 A4O1. The performance of the liquid was tested for temperature resistance, inhibition, gas formation protection effect, plugging performance, and static settlement stability. It was concluded that the temperature resistance performance is satisfied at 150°C, and the cuttings recovery rate is as high as 96.78 . It has good performance in inhibiting water dispersion and swelling of cuttings. The permeability recovery value reaches 88.9 , which meets the requirements of gas formation protection. The SSSI value shows that its settlement stability is good; under high temperature and high pressure, its sealing performance is good. This drilling fluid system has achieved the expected results and laid a foundation for further promoting the development of solid-free drilling fluid systems. The future development direction of solid-free drilling fluids is pointed out, to the improvement of properties to be applied in high temperature environment and have high salt resistance capacity.
