Manufacturing PlantIn coiled tubing cleanout, flow and viscosity measurements are critical for well control and verifying sweep effectiveness and efficiency. By integrating a dP cell with a Coriolis meter, a user is able to monitor gel viscosity development as well as flow rate.

The challenge most users face with this application is the measurement of non-Newtonian fluids. Current used technology is unreliable. This technology includes manual Saybolt funnel measurement and cup and bob rheometers. Since they are low-fidelity and/or very maintenance intensive, some of these technologies could lead to inefficient cleanout and even catastrophic stuck tubing.

Sign up for this session and learn how you can now get a reliable, real-time, in-line viscosity measurement for gel viscosity development and effectiveness of sweeps. This new solution also provides a paper trail for a user to provide to their customer for quality control compliance.
