  Wellbore stability is of one of challenges in drilling industry. Shale formation is of one of the most problematic rocks during drilling because the rock has very low permeability and very small pores (nanometers). In this study, the viability of the Alumina nanoparticles in Water-Based Mud (WBM) is ...  Read More

2. An Experimental Study on Evaluation of Factors Influencing the Viscosity and Viscoelastic Properties of Waxy Crude Oil

Yavar Karimi; Ali Reza Solaimany Nazar

Volume 9, Issue 1 , Winter 2020, , Pages 1-15

  The influences of several operating factors on the viscosity of the Isfahan refinery waxy crude oil sample are studied through conducting some rheological shear rotational tests. The Taguchi design method is adopted to determine the impact of factors such as shear rate, temperature, cooling rate, wax ...  Read More
