Abstract

This paper represents the research results of electric breakdown of drilling fluid Versa Pro and rocks, as well as rock fracture caused by pulsed electric discharge in a coupled environment of increased pressure and temperature. It proves that rock destruction including rock boring by means of electric discharge is possible at a depth of down to 3500 m.
