  • Publication number: 20200096429
    Abstract: Methods may include emplacing a downhole tool within a wellbore, sampling a fluid downhole with the downhole tool; analyzing the fluid, and calculating an interfacial tension (IFT), wherein calculating the acid-base IFT contribution comprises measuring a concentration of a surface-active species directly. Apparatuses for measuring an interfacial tension (IFT) in a fluid downhole may be part of a downhole tool and may include a sampling head to sample the fluid; and a downhole fluid analysis module that includes a spectrometer capable of measuring a concentration of a surface-active species in the fluid, and a processor configured to determine the IFT of the fluid downhole based on the measured concentration of the surface-active species.

  • Patent number: 10351751
    Abstract: A wellbore is internally sealed using nanoparticles. Permeability properties are determined for a particular formation, along with its pore throat size distribution. A wellbore internal sealant (nanoparticle treatment fluid) is designed based on the determined permeability properties and pore throat size distribution. The nanoparticle treatment fluid is introduced into the formation. Pore throats within the formation are plugged by nanoparticles in the nanoparticle treatment fluid. Internal sealing reduces leak-off from filtercake damage, and also eliminates build-up of surface filtercake. Sealing the pore-structure of a particular wellbore zone alleviates the need for additional lost circulation material, resulting in a very thin filtercake and significantly reducing the chance of differential sticking. Oil-based muds can be replaced with water-based equivalents.

  • Publication number: 20070098768
    Abstract: Disclosed is a two-side personal-care appliance for various applications, including exfoliation of skin. The appliance comprises a first interbonded fibrous layer having three-dimensional contours on both faces of the layer. These contours facilitate exfoliation and/or stimulation and/or gentle abrasion of skin. Furthermore, these contours facilitate contact and attachment to the second interbonded fibrous layer. The second interbonded fibrous layer comprises a high-loft material capable of gently cleaning skin, holding liquid, and generating lather.

  • Publication number: 20070098767
    Abstract: Substrates, and personal-care appliances made from such substrates, include an inter-bonded fibrous layer having shaped discontinuities and reinforcing strands attached to said inter-bonded fibrous layer. Pores between the fibers in the inter-bonded fibrous layer are suited to help hold liquid. The shaped discontinuities are suited to help generate suds or lather should the substrate or personal-care appliance be used in combination with a cleaning composition, soap formulation, or other such material having a surface-active agent or other chemical or compound that helps generate lather. The reinforcing strands help strengthen, or improve the wet resilience of, the inter-bonded fibrous layer. Furthermore, by selecting the appropriate ingredients of the reinforcing strands, the strands may be stiffer than the inter-bonded fibrous layer, thereby helping to provide some exfoliating character to the substrate or personal-care appliance.

  • Publication number: 20070026028
    Abstract: Disclosed is an appliance for treating skin or tissue, the appliance comprising a three-layer substrate having a cloth-like appearance and feel. The substrate includes a water-impermeable layer, such as a film, sandwiched between, and attached to, two fibrous layers. The fibrous layer that is adapted to contact skin includes a formulation or composition adapted to be transferred to skin or tissue of the user. Furthermore, the fibrous layer that is adapted to contact skin includes undulations that inhibit leakage of the formulation or composition.

  • Publication number: 20060142722
    Abstract: An article for use in contact with a tissue layer of a person and capable of holding its position with respect to the contacted tissue layer while reducing the opportunity for damage to the tissue layer comprises a support structure and a contact layer associated with the support structure. The contact layer has an engagement surface adapted to contact the user's tissue layer. The contact layer is constructed so that the engagement surface has a first state adapted to inhibit movement of the article with respect to the tissue layer of the user, and a second state adapted to enhance movement of the article with respect to the tissue layer of the user. The engagement surface is adapted to transform from the first state to the second state upon application of a force greater than a threshold force.
