Leading-Edge Rheometer Put into Operation
A state-of-the-art instrument, American-patented high temperature high pressure rheometer, was recently completed with its installation and put into commercial application. China's Petroleum Exploration & Development Research Institute has conducted efforts in introducing the product. With outstanding performance on data acquisition, the product produces a simulation result on rheidity of cement slurry through analysis of parameters such as temperature, pressure, shearing force, shear stress, consistency, etc. The acquired data are used to produce rheidity of cement slurry (Newtonian fluid) at all levels, which is considered essential for the selection of slurries. The operation, said experts, has greatly contributed to the industry's application of well completion operations.
