Does anyone have experience of using WBM or slick water during MPD operations?

Good evening colleagues and greetings from Kazakhstan.

We are planning for possible MPD operations and one of the questions we have is, have MPD ops been down with WBM or slick water as the drilling fluid.

Basically we want to spot water or light annulus mud on the backside and to drill ahead with WBM in the string.

The basis for this is to reduce losses and also the cost of those losses.

At the moment this is high level planning and idea discussion, and so we would be really interested to understand the experience that others out there have and how they managed this.
