Drilling/completion fluids

Before you pump materials down your well, be sure you fully understand the effectiveness of your friction reducers and gas migration slurries.
Fluid identification, a critical process in fluid sampling, continues to be a challenge in temperatures above 350°F. At temperatures up to 450°F, fluid identification is currently achieved by bubblepoint and compressibility measurements, which cannot quantitatively measure contamination levels of the sample fluid. A possible solution involves using pyroelectric detect…
The qualification and first deployment of a low-solids, oil-based completion fluid that incorporates a newly developed, high-density brine as the internal phase to extend the density limit is discussed.
