In appropriate mark with a fresh batch of well

 

In conclusion we were able
to determine a percentile value of sand contents present in the mud slurry
which may not be so harm full in this case due to proper carrying out of
procedures.

 Sand content = 0.5%

 

The following readings of various
percentile volume of sand were recorded from the graduated measuring tube
scale:

RESULTS

5.  
When concluded, rinse the slurry from the sieve screen,
measuring tube and funnel thoroughly. Dry each apparatus. The 200 mesh screen
should be given extra attention when cleaning

4.  
Place the funnel on its head hovering slightly over the sieve
screen. Gradually overturn the setup and carefully interject the apex point of
the funnel into the opening of the measuring tube. Rinse the sand contents into
the measuring tube spraying fresh water from the wash bottle onto the screen
shimmy the side of the screen with the aid of a metal spatula to further ease
this step

3.  
Cleanse the sieve screen with fresh water from the wash
bottle to loosen up sand remnants present on the sieve screen

2.  
 Proceed to laying over
the mix onto the screen of the sieve. Make waste of fluids which pour through
the opposite end of the sieve screen. Make sure to top up the water in the
measuring tube once more, shudder the tube the proceed to pour all contents
upon the sieve screen. Keep at it until the slurry has been completely wiped
out.

1.  
Load the measuring tube to the appropriate mark with a fresh
batch of well stirred mud slurry. Make use of the wash bottle to top up the
contents of the measuring tube with water or oil as the case may be. ( In
our  experiment we made use of fresh
water)

PROCEDURE

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to API standards any
substance which is of 74 microns in diameter large enough for 200 mesh is
considered sand sized particle. This experiment can be performed on all types
of drilling fluids including heavy drilling fluids and light weighted drilling
fluids.

The amount of sand particles present
in a drilling fluid can be given in form of percentage with the aid of a sand
content kit.

 

APPARATUS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is of good knowledge to be well
aware of sand content percentile present in our mud slurry due to over deposition
which may be of harm to the wellbore that is differential sticking, cutting
beds, prevention of laminar mud flow around the well and so on. Which can
affect production of a drilling operation and cause damage to tools and
equipment. If the sand content present is too high it could be very dangerous
to the drill pipes causing cracks and wear on the drill pipes.

This experiment is
conducted in order to check for the presence of sand in drilling fluids. This
experiment was organized so as to prevent the formation of a filter cake which
is too thick and may be hazardous if accumulation occurs around the walls of
the wellbore.
