Completion Fluids Technical Services
Completion fluids services encompass a wide range of testing capabilities, including but not limited to, formation damage assessment resulting from exposure to completion and drill-in fluids, shale inhibition properties, and drill pipe corrosion prevention. Proven processes are established for brine evaluation, treatment recommendations for fluid reconditioning, and preventing possible permeability impairment by contaminants.
Variable Pressure Crystallometer
Variable Pressure Crystallometer apparatus provides the ability to test crystallization points of brines under elevated pressures for deepwater applications.
Automated Return Permeameter
Core samples are tested with the Automated Return Permeameter to identify the least damaging drilling/completion fluid for a particular operation. The samples can be tested at elevated temperatures and pressures and under dynamic and actual downhole conditions. The Automated Return Permeameter provides the ability to program remedial steps, such as clean-up with acids and oxidizers.
Gravel Pack Tester
The Gravel Pack Tester is used to evaluate sealing capabilities of fluids on simulated gravel packs/screens under variable temperatures and differential pressures.
