Completion Fluids Testing

Fluid rock interaction studies

Fluid Compatibility Testing

W.D. Von Gonten Laboratories has developed a proprietary workflow for testing surfactants and other completion chemicals contained in the frac fluid. The workflow includes performing the fluid compatibility tests and tilt tests as initial screening for surfactants, contact angle measurements and proppant pack wettability tests to evaluate the tendency of surfactants to alter favorably the wettability and aid in oil movement.


Clay Stabilizer Testing

In shales a large portion of your reservoir are composed of clays. Different types of clays exhibit different behaviors when exposed to fluids. Clay Stabilizier Testing is performed to establish the degree of sensitivity to fluids.
