Fluid Chemistry, Drilling and Completion, the latest release in the Oil and Gas Chemistry Management series that covers all sectors of oil and gas chemicals (from drilling to production, processing, storage and transportation), delivers critical chemical oilfield basics while also covering the latest research developments and practical solutions. Organized by type of chemical, the book allows engineers to fully understand how to effectively control chemistry issues, make sound decisions, and mitigate challenges. Sections cover downhole sampling, crude oil characterization, such as fingerprinting properties, data interpretation, chemicals specific to fluid loss control, and matrix stimulation chemicals. Supported by a list of contributing experts from both academia and industry, the book provides a necessary reference that bridges petroleum chemistry operations from theory, to safer, cost-effective applications.
