Experimental and Simulation Study of Barite Settlement Phenomenon under Static and Dynamic Condition, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Shad, Saeed ; Hosseini Mokhtari, Zahra
In petroleum related drilling, Barite particles settling and Barite sag as major problems in drilling wells can potentially impose significant operational issues. In this study, a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and experimental investigation of Barite settlement in annular space were conducted in both static and dynamic conditions. The Euler-Euler approach was used to model the multiphase flow of solid Barite particles and drilling fluid. In this approach, the momentum lost between phases has been taken into account by means of particle-particle and particle-fluid exchange coefficients. The governing equations were numerically solved using finite volume method by CFD software package...

In drilling industry, barite particles settling and barite sag as a major problem can potentially impose significant operational issues. Static conditions, in which well undergoes an extended shut-in period, could occur during different drilling and completion operations such fishing operation, tripping, and logging. Despite its importance, such phenomenon is not well understood yet. To avoid issues related to barite settlement and barite sag, a good understanding of the impact of different drilling parameters on barite settlement and sag phenomenon is required. Recently, the mathematical formulation and modeling of settlement and sag processes have gained more attention. In order to better...
