Drilling Fluids Analysis

Well known for producing the world's most capable and reliable high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) well cementing instruments, the Chandler Engineering portfolio of instruments and systems has grown to include drilling fluid testing as well as many other unique solutions for reservoir evaluation, well construction and completions.

  • Model 9000 Drilling Fluids Simulator

    The Model 9000 Drilling Fluids Simulator is designed to study permeability changes in a core as a result of fluid invasion, chemical reactions and filter cake deposition. The system maintains the core at elevated temperature and confining pressures to simulate well bore conditions. Temperature is maintained with band heaters on each pressure vessel in addition to the system being enclosed in a temperature controlled oven.

  • WellPro Process Mass Spectrometer

    Current measurements as done by GC-FID top out at C5 and take upwards of a minute to process. Both of these measurements are lacking as drilling speed and directional capabilities increase and determination of the pay quality in narrow zones becomes more important. The WellPro provides near real-time quantitative analysis of C1 through C7 components in less than 10 seconds. Analysis accuracy is maintained by the use of a small gas cylinder used to verify the instrument performance. Recalibration, if required, is completely automatic.
