Autonomous drilling fluids monitoring

A big congrats to our field team for successfully completing another drilling fluids monitoring service for an onshore exploration well. OBM was used in the reservoir section, and a total of 37 days of stable monitoring by REALology® was achieved. Apparent viscosity (AV) humps were observed by REALology® (blue line), while the manual measurement did not (red dots), due to low testing frequency. Besides rheological parameters, other parameters including density, temperature, pH, and chloride concentration are also monitored and visually presented as the chart shown below, and transmitted to clients’ RTOC in real-time, which allows experts to monitor and guide drilling fluid maintenance for multiple wells off locations.
