Recent advances of modified polyacrylamide in drilling

Water-based drilling mud comprises 80 percent water and 20 percent drilling additives. Lesser water content in drilling fluid can minimise the shale swelling. In contrary, high water content in drilling fluid may have drawbacks such as high shale, friction, and mud filtrate volume with low plastic viscosity.

PHPA mud | Energy Glossary

A class of water muds that use partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide (PHPA) as a functional additive, either to control wellbore shales or to extend bentonite clay in a low-solids mud. As a shale -control mud, PHPA is believed to seal microfractures and coat shale surfaces with a film that retards dispersion and disintegration.

field applications of phpa muds - drilling fluid management

Field Applications of PHPA Muds - Drilling Fluid Management

Field Applications of PHPA Muds The application of polymer muds has been hindered by two criticisms. First, they are difficult to run because mud-engineering maintenance guidelines are very different from conventional bentonite mud systems. Second, they are less solids-tolerant than dispersed or lime-based systems.

Optimization Of Drilling Fluid Rheological And Fluid Loss

Abstract. Drilling fluids with bentonite can often cause major problems such as flocculation, loss of rheology control and excessive friction due to high clay concentration. Polymers can mitigate such problems, but all these come with much higher costs. Partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide (PHPA) polymers are used as additives to bentonite water based fluids to stabilize shales and in HTHP

Summary. Mud systems with partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide polymer (PHPA) are used worldwide and have proved effective and versatile for inhibiting troublesome shale formations. We made significant changes in the generally recommended compositions for these systems and developed a systematic approach to applying them. The most significant changes are (1) the constant maintenance of 1.0 lbm

Description: PHPA is a co-polymer of anionic character and high molecular weight. It is a water-soluble polymer, which is primarily used as a highly efficient fluid loss reducer, Viscosifier and protective colloid for shale¡¯s and cutting in fresh water, calcium, sodium brines and KCL mud systems.

polymeric and low molecular weight shale inhibitors: a review

Polymeric and low molecular weight shale inhibitors: A review

The presence of PHPA in water-based drilling fluids serves as an inhibiting agent by forming a protective layer on the clay and preventing the interaction of water with the clay minerals. The calcium chloride-based drilling fluid was also used for the inhibition of shale formation by encapsulation and ion exchange mechanisms.

Loss of drilling fluid commonly known as mud loss is considered as one of the critical issues during the drilling operation as it can cause severe formation damage. To minimize fluid loss, researchers introduced numerous additives but did not get the expected result. Recently, the use of nanoparticles (NPs) in drilling fluid gives a new hope to control the fluid loss. A basic KCl¨CGlycol
