Drilling/completion fluids

Recent developments in drilling-systems automation provide a multitude of opportunities to have real-time monitoring of drilling-fluid properties and early diagnosis of drilling-fluid-related complications that might arise while drilling. Coupled with closed-loop control of surface and downhole drilling-fluid properties, automated monitoring of fluid properties would …
This paper presents experiences from an automated drilling-fluids-monitoring initiative and resulting real-time hydraulic measurements and models for automatic drilling control.
This paper presents the design and functionality of an apparatus that measures directly and automatically the pressure/volume/temperature (PVT) behavior of the drilling fluid contained in a pit.
