LCM sweeps as hole cleaning treatments

Hello member friends,

I hope you are doing great. I just joined SPREAD.

I would like to get your thoughts on fiber sweep or nutshell sweep as a treatment of hole cleaning in angled wells.

The basic concept behind it is that the abrasive material of this sweep will erode the beds of cuttings to some degree. But in practical terms , is it really an efficient way to serve its intended purpose ?
  • Do you have some experience with sweeps ? 
  • Are there any noteworthy steps to do while using this sweep to get better performance ? 
I would love to hear your experience about this matter.

My regards
