workover fluid

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A well-control fluid, typically a brine, that is used during workover operations. Since the wellbore is in contact with the reservoir during most workover operations, workover fluids should be clean and chemically compatible with the reservoir fluids and formation matrix.
