    What is a ¨wiper trip¨ in an oil well discussion?
    The sentence is the following:

    ¨The idea is to evaluate the borehole condition in this wiper trip also and take a desicion based on that¨

    Thanks!

    wiper trip
    1. n. [Drilling] ID: 1664
    An abbreviated recovery and replacement of the drillstring in the wellbore that usually includes the bit and bottomhole assembly passing by all of the openhole, or at least all of the openhole that is thought to be potentially troublesome. This trip varies from the short trip or the round trip only in its function and length. Wiper trips are commonly used when a particular zone is troublesome or if hole-cleaning efficiency is questionable
