Porosity is the percentage of empty space within a solid media. Effective porosity is the percentage of void space in which the pore spaces are interconnected. Accurately determining the effective porosity of a petroleum reservoir is important for estimating the total amount of recoverable hydrocarbons within a producing formation.

The BLP-630 Automated Gas Porosimeter was designed to rapidly and accurately measure the effective porosity of a core sample. Three separate volumetric gas reservoirs provide seven (7) possible gas volume combinations to improve effective pore space data for a broad range of core sizes and porosities. It includes an assortment of volumetric core holder inserts to minimize dead space for greater accuracy. And the core holder is secured and release with a quarter turn by hand for quick and easy core loading.

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.

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 MudChecker, from Salunda Ltd., is quickly becoming one of the most talked-about instruments in the drilling fluids industry. This handheld, solid-state device provides oil, water, total solids, and salinity measurements in a simple, two-step process. It also measures high-gravity and low-gravity solids with no chemicals and no heating elements. The results are accurate, repeatable, electronic, and traceable.

The latest release of the MudChecker, version 1.5, now offers standalone operation. All calculations are now performed on onboard, with no software and no internet connection required. This exciting new feature makes it easier for remote technicians and rig personnel to take measurements in areas where the internet is not accessible.

Everyone in the drilling fluids industry is familiar with the oilfield retort. It measures the volume of oil, water, and solids in a sample of drilling mud. They come in three sizes – 10 mL, 20 mL, and 50 mL – and are often included in field portable kits.

Typically, the retorts included in kits are the smallest size, 10 mL. But OFITE has changed that. We have developed a 20 mL retort chamber that fits into the same heating jacket as the 10 mL retort chamber. This gives you a choice of sample volumes in your field kits. And since it fits in the same heating jacket, you can easily switch sizes by changing the chambers and cups.
