    Barite Sag is a common phenomenon that occurs while drilling for oil and gas. Barite, BaSO4 is a weighing agent used to increase the density of drilling fluids to a desired level. It has a high density of g/cm3. The problem that occurs in this phenomenon is that as the mud is circulated through the borehole, the barite that was dissolved in ...
