Accelerated Learning Tutorial - Oil and Synthetic Based Emulsifiers

In many ways, oil-based fluid has been described as an ideal fluid because the interaction with the formation is minimal.  Since their inception, oil-based fluids have aided in applications such as shale drilling, HTHP wells, high angle wellbores, increased ROP, and drilling though salt zones just to name a few.  Every wonder how they work?   What is the unique chemistry behind these versatile fluids that enables them to exist as a technology capable of meeting the demands of our industry? How are these chemistries different from each other?  Along with these questions, this course will also cover aspects related to the following:

1. A baseline of the different oil-based emulsifiers available

2. Feedstocks used for different oil-based emulsifiers and the manufacturing process

3. The HLB system and its use in relation to emulsifiers

4. Which unique drilling scenarios require specific emulsifier chemistries and why

5. General indications on cost
