In recent years, the application of nano technology is attracting the oil and gas industry. Nanomaterials research results show an improving result of cement, drilling fluid and Enhanced Oil Recovery. In this paper, the effect of nano Titanium Nitride (TiN) on polymer (CMC) and salt (KCL) treated bentonite drilling fluid systems has been studied at 22-, 50- and 70°C temperatures. The results show that the addition of 0,0095 wt % TiN reduced the friction coefficient of the conventional nano-free drillng fluid by an average of -46 %. In addition, the yield stress and plastic viscosity increased significantly by +122% and +by 17%, respectively. The API filtrate loss decreased by -7,1%. The torque and drag simulation results show that the friction coefficient reduction increased the drilling depth by +31% compared to the nano-free system.
