The efficiency of oil processes depends on the product of volumetric sweep and microscopic sweep. In oil recovery by steam injection the microscopic sweep is generally good; however, obtaining a good volumetric sweep can be challenging. This is caused by low density and viscosity of the injected steam combined with the reservoir heterogeneity...

Optimization of drilling fluid properties is an essential part of cost effective drilling operations and process safety. Currently fluid properties are measured and optimized manually by human engineers with different skills and experience which might lead to nonoptimum drilling fluid properties that deteriorate its functionalities. Automated...

In the oil and gas industry, safety and efficiency are taken into high regard when obtaining new natural resources. An increasing demand for automation arises to meet with the new safety and efficiency standards. During drilling operations, drilling fluid maintenance has an important role in guaranteeing safety on the rig. Controlling the...

Bentonite is a clay that is used in many industrial applications. Company X required an investigation on the bentonite that is mined by Company Y. Currently Company X produces cat litter only from her bentonite, but other applications might be of economical interest to the company. After scoping down to 4 applications other than cat litter ...

A research was undertaken to find the suitability of Turkish calcium bentonite from the mines of a Company. Four samples of bentonite mines in the {\"U}nye region are researched, the M1, M2, M3 and M4 mine. The suitability of drilling fluid, foundry sand, soil improvement and bleaching earth applications is found through research on the...

The static leak-off of oil-based drilling mud into liquid-saturated cores was studied experimentally. A simple model for the leak-off was first developed extending an earlier model for the static filtration into unsaturated core. CT scan aided static filtration experiments were performed in brine and oil and brine saturated cores, simulating...

An experimental study on the leak-off of oil based drilling fluid sandstone cores is reported. First we revised the theoretical models for the rheology of the drilling fluid, the flow behavior of drilling fluids in the drill pipe and annulus, and filtration mechanisms. Then systematic static leak-off experiments were carried out using an...
