The cuttings produced by the drill bit and the rocks dropped from the formation are accurately called drill cuttings. Generally speaking, the phenomenon that drill cuttings increase the solid content of the drilling fluid will not appear quickly, and its hazards will have a certain process, and the economic impact will not be shown to us quickly, so many People do not believe that drill cuttings can harm the drilling fluid to the extent that they actually cause damage. Drill cuttings will increase drilling costs, damage the reservoir, and increase the cost of drilling fluids. Therefore, drill cuttings are interrelated with the following special issues:

1. Filtrate damages the reservoir

2. Limited drilling speed

3. Complex underground

4. Stuck

5. Lost circulation

6. Direct drilling fluid cost

7. Increase in processing costs
