Performance evaluation of Mucuna solannie as a drilling fluid additive in water-base mud at cold temperature

Weighted and unweighted aqueous mud formulations from a biomaterial, at cold temperature of 5°C, were tested for their rheological characteristics. Based on API guidelines and recommended equipment for drilling fluid tests, the rheological properties of the formulations were determined. The muds exhibited pseudoplastic behaviour. The fluid loss volumes of the weighted and unweighted muds are 14 and 21 ml,...

Application of rate transient analysis modeling in diagnosis of well abnormal flowing status in Middle East carbonate reservoir

Modern Rate Transient Analysis (RTA) is the hottest technology in recent years in reservoir engineering. Its main working principle is combining production data with bottom-hole pressure data based on the assuming reservoir model and well model. It will evaluate the reserves (Oil Drainage Radius and STOIIP), reservoir properties (permeability), wellbore condition (skin) and forecast production performance for single...
