Laboratory Study of Effect Of 1.0mm-Sawdust With Various Types of Viscosifier Additives On Properties of Oil-Based Drilling Mud, International Journal of Scientific and Engineering Research (IJSER) Volume 3, Issue 8, August 2012
Laboratory application of sawdust in oil-based mud was carried out. 1.0mm sawdust sample was used as follow up to earlier experiments. Various viscosifier; bentonite, kaolin and starch were added to the mud samples. Results obtained gave good results for improvement in the density, initial and final gel strength and viscosities of the mud. This proved that sawdust associated with the...
