Evaluation of Sugarcane Fiber as Potential Lost Circulation Material

Abstract—Drilling fluid is a mixture of chemicals used in the drilling operation and it is re-circulated within the well. It function as lubricating agents to keep the drilling tools in good condition, maintain the temperature and pressure, as well as prevent well damage. The drilling fluid may lost in circulation due to the pressure differences because of formation fractures; crevices within the formation. Lost Circulation Material (LCM) is substances that added into the drilling fluid fun...

Use of Smart Controls in Intelligent Well Completion to Optimize Oil and Gas Recovery.

ABSTRACT    For the past few years, the oil and gas industry has faced several economic, geographic and technical challenges largely due to decline in crude oil prices and market volatility.    In the quest to address some of these challenges to accelerate production and subsequently maximize ultimate recovery, operators are limited to remote hydraulic and electro-hydraulic monitoring and control of safety valves providing the means of obtaining downhole production data w...

Evaluation of Guinea Corn Husk Ash As Oil-Well Cement Slurry Extender

The objective of primary cementing operation is to provide zonal isolation while drilling oil and gas wells. To achieve this purpose, cement slurries are designed by adding additives to control certain properties such as density, free fluid, compressive strength, rheology, among others. These additives are imported whereas Ghana produces large amount of agro-waste yearly causing environmental nuisance, though these have the potentials of being used in the petroleum industry. The extend...
