Drilling Fluid Laboratory carries out the drilling fluid parameters measurement and chemicals quality control using standard and non-standard methods. Laboratory specialists engaged in developing receipts of water based muds: biopolymer drilling muds, without solids with high density, aerated muds with reduced density, process fluids without solids; and oil based muds: invert-emulsion muds for different ecological requirements. Laboratory provides search, selection and, if necessary, new reagents synthesis used as components of drilling muds.
The laboratory carries out the research on influence of drilling fluids and process liquids on reservoir properties of bottomhole formation zone.
Cementing Laboratory performs the analysis and quality control of basic cements, chemical reagents and additives used in well cementing, reveals the reasons of low quality cementing. Laboratory specialists are engaged in developing receipts of plugging material with expanding properties for increasing quality of formation isolation in production intervals and preventing cross flow during casing. Laboratory provides search and selection of components for developing receipts of plugging materials taking into account field features.
