Problems such as stuck pipe, tight hole, washout, and sloughing can be related to shale stability. Tests used to determine if a specific shale is likely to cause problems include the capillary suction time (CST) test and the linear-swell meter (LSM) test. CST test results show the inhibitive effects of various slats and their concentrations on the dispersion of a shale.
