Thermochemical Upgrading of Calcium Bentonite for Drilling Fluid Applications
( American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) , 2019 , Article)
The rheological properties of bentonite suspensions depend on the chemical composition and the contained dominant element, such as calcium (Ca), potassium (K), and sodium (Na). Na-bentonite type is the one used in drilling ...
Clay minerals damage quantification in sandstone rocks using core flooding and NMR
( Springer Verlag , 2019 , Article)
Sandstone oil reservoirs consist of different clay minerals such as kaolinite, illite, and chlorite. These clay minerals highly affect the formation damage during enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and well stimulation operations ...
Application of DFT in iron sulfide scale removal from oil and gas wells
( European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers, EAGE , 2019 , Conference Paper)
Scale formation including those formed by iron sulfides have been a major hassle in the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry for many decades. Iron Sulfide scales including pyrite (FeS2) and troilite (FeS) often ...
Effect of rock mineralogy on Hot-CO2 injection for enhanced gas recovery
( Elsevier B.V. , 2019 , Article)
Conventional gas reservoirs are one of the viable options for CO2 enhanced gas recovery and sequestration. Injection of hot CO2 into depleted reservoirs is expected to improve gas recovery. Static adsorption and core ...
