The equipment is now being used in BHDF laboratories at its world headquarters in Houston to provide viscosity profiles at temperature and pressures beyond the capabilities of present day viscometers. The viscosity profiles are used in hydraulic modeling for ultra-deep gas projects currently under way on several Gulf of Mexico shelf wells. The instrument is a joint development effort between BHDF and Chandler Engineering.
"The XHPHT viscometer is one of a suite of specialized BHDF equipment designed to provide essential technical support for the oil and gas exploration industry's XHPHT endeavors," explained John A. O'Donnell, President, Baker Hughes Drilling Fluids.
