Limiter Redesign: Fluid Management to Maximize Drilling Performance

Fred Dupriest sat down with AES Drilling Fluids to talk about his signature framework, a.k.a. Limiter Redesign, that can put the drilling performance of any operator into a perpetual motion toward to upper right corner.

This is a great resource to get a crash course under 80 minutes on physics-based drilling performance, with focus on some specific topics related to drilling fluids:


The author James Clear on improvement:

“Improvements are only temporary until they become part of who you are.

-The goal is not to read a book, the goal is to become a reader.

-The goal is not to run a marathon, the goal is to become a runner.

-The goal is not to learn an instrument, the goal is to become a musician.

This year, focus on the identity you want to build.”

What’s the identity you’re building this year for yourself and your drilling team?

Until next week,


P.S. For the record, I’m in no way affiliated to AES Drilling Fluids, and I’m only sharing this because I believe it can help drilling engineers out there to drill their best campaign ever in 2021 despite the challenging circumstances which may still remain with us for a while.
