• Come See us at the SPE ATCE in Dallas

    OFITE will be exhibiting at the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition this month in Dallas, TX. If you will be attending, please stop by and see us in booth 2042. We will be showing: Model 4005 Automated UCA/SGSM with automated temperature and pressure control, touch-screen display, and integrated Static Gel Strength Measurement Device The all-new TLF-112 Triaxial Mechanical Properties Testing System, which measures the compressive strength, Young’s modulus, Poisson’s ratio, and tensile strength (using the indirect Brazilian method) of well cement. Also learn about our services and new partnerships. The show is September 24 – 26, 2018 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX. You can see a complete list of scheduled tradeshows on our Shows and Expos page. We hope to see you there! ...

  • One Year After Harvey

    Tomorrow, August 25, is the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey. The wind, storm surge, intense rain, and unprecedented flooding that followed devastated the Houston area and many communities along the Texas gulf coast. OFITE has always been proud to be a part of the Houston community. Our roots here go deep. And we shared in the heartbreak and pain of the region as we watched the terrible events unfold. This weekend, we want to remember the tragedies of the storm and celebrate the triumphs of our families, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and partners who faced the unthinkable, and remained, as always, #HoustonStrong. Many victims of Hurricane Harvey are still in need of assistance. If you would like to contribute, here is a list of organizations still helping those in need: Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Rebuild Texas Fund Houston Habitat for Humanity United Way of Greater Ho ...

  • A Better Way to Retort

    The Retort is designed to measure the percentage of oil, water, and solids in a sample of drilling fluid or cuttings. This percentage is crucial for controlling mud properties, such as rheology, density, filtration, and salinity. And knowing the solids content of your drilling mud is essential for evaluating viscosity control and solids control equipment. The new Multi Unit Retort combines five 50 mL Retorts into a single unit. Each Retort has its own electronic temperature controller and an ergonomic stand for holding the receiver tube (also known as JP Tube). This compact design not only fits under a fume hood, but it also saves valuable and scarce bench space. For more information, visit the product page. ...

  • Space Still Available for October Drilling Fluids Training

    Oil drilling is complex. It combines many different technologies and disciplines. Rig teams today must have extensive knowledge of drilling fluid chemistry as well as testing equipment to effectively drill a well. We are proud to host a drilling fluid training program, taught by industry experts, that covers all aspects of drilling fluids technology. This course emphasizes both theory and practical application, with both classroom lecture and hands-on laboratory exercises. Classes are held at the OFITE facility in Houston, TX. Lead instructor is David Breeden, a consultant with over 35 years of experience in all aspects of drilling fluids technology, marketing, R&D, and operations. He is joined by Larry Mitchell, who has over 20 years of experience with drilling fluids testing equipment and technology. The next class will be October 1st through 5th, 2018. Space is still available, ...

  • Lubricity Evaluation Monitor

    Excessive torque and drag is a common problem in the drill string. It can cause a variety of problems that negatively impact well efficiency. The primary cause of often mechanical friction between the wellbore and tubulars. The solution is usually to add lubricants to the drilling fluid. Prior to choosing any lubricant, it is important to evaluate all available options to see which one lubricates the best and has the best chemical compatibility with the drilling fluid. The most direct test method involves determining the coefficient of friction of the base fluid and comparing it to the coefficient of friction with the lubricant. The Lubricity Evaluation Monitor (LEM) is the most versatile instrument for testing the coefficient of friction of drilling fluids. During a test, a wellbore or casing sample is pressed against a rotating steel bob while immersed in a circulating bath of test f ...
