OFITE will be exhibiting at the 2021 SPE International Conference on Oilfield Chemistry, December 6 and 7 in The Woodlands, Texas at booth 315. We will be showing the all-new OLR Series 1000 OnLine Rheometer, which measures the rheological properties of fluids either inline or online. We will also be showing the all-new Model 800E Viscometer.

We hope to see you there!

Real-Time Analysis of Fluids in the Process Pipeline. The OLR utilizes a unique implementation of squeeze flow technology providing a quick and rich measurement of the elastic and flow properties of the fluid. The operator can then make informed process decisions about the quality of the material in the pipe and make appropriate changes.

OFITE is excited to launch the OFITE Automated System (OASys). OASys is an innovative solution for the real-time measurement and reporting of drilling fluid properties. All three instruments included in OASys sit on the rig where they can sample the drilling fluid directly. The measurements are then sent to the rig data information system where it is used for simple real time calculations for predicting hole cleaning efficiency and ECD at total depth. This data is then available to be viewed through the rig data information system by the Driller and other personnel at the wellsite as well as remotely via the internet or smart phone apps.

Recent advances in drilling technology have significantly increased the average rate of penetration of a typical well. In the time a sample is drawn, taken to the lab, and measurements reported, the bit may have drilled hundreds of feet from when the sample was drawn. The need for continuous and for frequent measurements is critical.

At OFITE we are excited to announce a new product for rheology testing. The OLR Series 1000 OnLine Rheometer is designed to continuously measure, plot, and report the flow properties of process fluids in the pipe. It provides instant and accurate rheological data in real time so that during manufacturing and processing, liquids are produced and maintained within specification.

The OLR is designed for use in a pipe. It continuously measures and relays the data to the process operator, either through the software (SOLR) or through a factory PLC (Process Logic Controller). The plant operator or engineer input specific flow property data for the product being tested to establish the optimum production specification parameters. The OLR monitors the process and displays the product conformance throughout the manufacturing and production process.

Drilling fluids are critical to maintaining well safety and quality during construction and completion. That makes drilling fluid properties key control parameters of the drilling and completion process. Moreover, increased efficiency of new drilling technology, and demand for data driven by digital advances in remote monitoring and analytics require frequent and reliable measurement of the physical and chemical properties of drilling fluids. Typically, these properties have been measured by manual field sampling and testing. But manual testing lags advances in drilling efficiency, causes delays, and is susceptible to bias, inconsistencies, and inadvertent human errors.

Mud properties must be monitored and adapted as drilling progresses to total depth. These properties are not only critical to the safety and efficiency of the operation, they also provide valuable information throughout the drilling process. With this information, problems can be anticipated, and changes can be made. With better and more frequent measurements of mud properties comes improved safety and reduced nonproductive time (NPT), cost, and time to total depth.
