Real-time Drill Mud Viscosity Instrument in Action at SPE

Jan 15 2008

Brookfield Engineering Lab.ratories, Inc., (USA) recently showcased their TT100 in-line viscometer at the SPE Show in Anaheim, CA., USA November 11-14,2007. Brookfield created great interest with this device for continuous real-time drilling fluid viscosity measurement.
Brookfield showed the audience how to obtain continuous real-time viscosity measurements and how to do so at multiple RPM speeds/shear rates. This instrument provides data that allows customers the potential to determine real-time annular hydraulics as well. With this information, drilling engineers have the ability to reduce drilling cost, prevent well control problems and drastically increase efficiency.
Brookfield’s TT100 with Couette geometry now provides a way to create and communicate a new level of data for rig operators, owners, and drilling fluid suppliers that is extremely valuable and provides new efficiency while reducing time and costs. The viscometer, when combined with a data logging system can provide real-time yield point, plastic viscosity, and apparent viscosity information, which gives customers the opportunity to view power law and other calculations continuously. This instrument, which has been the workhorse of the stimulation industry for decades, has been adapted over the past few years to meet the needs of the drilling fluids applications. It is currently in use at various drilling sites throughout the world.
