English term or phrase: abrasive formation
Definition from Hacettepe University:
A rock consisting of small, hard, sharp-cornered, angular fragments, or a rock, the cuttings from which, produced by the action of a drill bit, are hard, sharp-cornered, angular grains, which grind away or abrade the metal on bits and drill-stem equipment at a rapid rate.

Example sentence(s):
  • Coiled tubing drilling was selected due to the small production casing and the aggressive curve section buildup rate in the hard, abrasive formation. Hart Energy Publishing, LP
  • In general, an impregnated diamond bit with a low identifying number such as “D2” would be used to drill a relatively soft, fractured and abrasive formation. Dimatec Inc
  • If used in the correct rock type then the drilling speed is faster than with other bits designs. These bits can't be used in soft and high abrasive formation rocks. Rod Pietsch

Definition from own experience or research:
Schurende gesteenten zijn gesteenten waarin booronderdelen meer slijtage ondergaan dan in andere gesteenten. Voor het boren in schurende gesteenten zijn slijtvaste boren noodzakelijk.

Example sentence(s):
  • Diamantbeitels Dit type beitel bestaat uit een stalen lichaam, waarop een groot aantal diamanten in een bepaald patroon, dat afhankelijk is van de formatiehardheid, is vastgekit. De belangrijkste voordelen van deze beitel zijn: De grote hardheid, waardoor in harde formaties kan worden geboord. De goede slijtvastheid, waardoor in schurende gesteenten kan worden geboord. De duurzaamheid van de beitel waardoor efficiënter kan worden geboord. - Wikipedia
