• New Product Addresses the Challenges of Testing Foam Cement in the Lab

    Foam cement is a versatile, low-density cementing system used in many oil-well applications. It is commonly used for low fracture gradient or lost circulation problem wells. The formulation is unique compared to other oil-well fluids because it uses three phases of matter. The solid phase consists of cement and other dry additives. The liquid phase is mix water and any liquid additives. And the gaseous phase is, in most cases, nitrogen (N2) gas. Adding nitrogen gas to a cement slurry dramatically reduces the density while using the same amount of mix water. Because no extra water is used, foam cement develops sufficient mechanical strength for well-bore application while improving the bonding characteristics. As the temperature increases down hole, the nitrogen gas expands, pushing the foam cement against the formation and casing and creating a stronger bond. Despite the added benefits, ...

  • Cement Settling

    Settling during a well cement operation can lead to the development of free water or free fluid. Free water and fluid do not set like cement, which can compromise well integrity and zonal isolation. The BP Cement Settling Tube is designed to test the settling characteristics of well cement under elevated temperature and pressure. The cement slurry is poured into the brass tube and cured in a Consistometer, Curing Chamber, or water bath. After the cement has cured, the column is cut into pieces and the density of each piece is measured using Archimedes Principle. Visit the product page for more information. ...

  • Portable Particle Size Analysis

    Sometimes particle size analysis just has to be done on the rig. Unfortunately, most particle size analyzers are large laboratory models. And taking them into the field is just not convenient. Now there is a better option: the Portable FlowCAM® Dynamic Imaging Particle Size Analyzer. The Portable FlowCAM® features the same powerful particle imaging technology and software as the bench top model in a portable design. The rugged, water-resistant case on wheels makes transportation safe and easy. And it can operate on either 115/230 volt or 12 volt power, so you know there will always be power available. With the FlowCAM® software, you can visually post-process particle data, instead of using cumbersome tabular spreadsheets. The camera captures a digital image of each particle and presents the data in an easy-to-read VisualSpreadsheet® or through the patented Interactive Scatter ...
