perforating fluid

1. n. [Perforating, Well Completions]
A specially prepared fluid placed in the wellbore over the interval to be perforated. The ideal fluid is clean and solids-free (filtered), and will not react to cause damaging by-products on contact with the reservoir formation. Perforating in a dirty fluid may result in significant permeability damage that is difficult to treat and remove.
