  • Publication number: 20180002596
    Abstract: An aqueous suspension of polymer bodies is made by coalescing polymer from a flowing aqueous solution. These suspended bodies may be fibrous in appearance. However, the coalescence of the polymer bodies may be controlled to produce shapes. The coalesced polymer bodies are used for treating a downhole location within or accessed by a borehole. The bodies may be formed by coalescence at the surface and then pumped downhole or may be formed by coalescence downhole. Coalescence of polymer may result from crosslinking, complexing with material of opposite charge, or change in the polymer solution temperature, pH, solute concentration or solvent. The coalesced polymer bodies are maintained in aqueous solution after coalescence, and are not removed from solution for strengthening.

  • Publication number: 20170226409
    Abstract: A treatment fluid includes a carrier fluid having a pH less than 6.5, a polysaccharide gelling agent, and a pH modifier which decomposes and/or releases a pH increasing agent under downhole formation conditions to increase the pH of the fluid within the formation, Methods of using the treatment fluid include introducing the treatment fluid in a well bore and allowing the pH modifier to decompose and/or release the pH increasing agent to increase the pH of the wellbore treatment fluid above 7.

  • Patent number: 9475981
    Abstract: A method of treating a subterranean formation penetrated by a wellbore includes introducing a treatment fluid comprised at least a crosslinkable component, and a metal crosslinker to the subterranean formation, forming a crosslinked treatment fluid, and de-crosslinking bonds of the crosslinked treatment fluid by manipulating a pH of the treatment fluid with a pH triggering agent, wherein the pH triggering agent is an amine-precursor compound or a derivative thereof.

  • Patent number: 9074465
    Abstract: Methods and related systems are described for real-time wellsite production allocation analysis. Spectroscopic in-situ measurements are made in the vicinity of a wellsite of a produced fluid from one or more boreholes. The produced fluid includes in a co-mingled state, at least a first fluid component from a first production zone and a second fluid component from a second production zone. An allocation is estimated in real-time for at least the first fluid component in the produced fluid based at least in part on the spectroscopic in-situ measurements. The in-situ measurements can be several types, for example: (1) absorption of electromagnetic radiation having wavelengths in the range of ultraviolet, visible and/or infrared light, (2) X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy measurements, (3) electromagnetic scattering spectroscopic measurements such as Raman spectroscopy measurements, (4) NMR spectroscopy measurements, and (5) terahertz time-domain spectroscopy measurements.

  • Publication number: 20140224000
    Abstract: A technique facilitates estimation of the viscosity of heavy oil. The method comprises evaluating a sample of oil by using an infrared spectrum sensor to obtain a reference temperature based on infrared absorbance. The reference temperature can then be used to determine viscosity data on the sample at a given temperature or temperatures.
