  • Cold Starting and Pumpability Studies in Modern Engines

    By the early 1990s, published independent studies suggested that the safety margin between cold starting (cranking) and pumpability might not be valid for modern engines. Five changes in engines and lubricants which may have been lowering the starting temperatures of these engines were cited: low-friction engine designs, fuel injection systems, ...

  • Chemical and Biological Characterization of Municipal Sludges, Sediments, Dredge Spoils, and Drilling Muds

    Papers present the state of the art in sludge sampling, sample preservation, validated methods for monitoring, and strategies for monitoring and field assessment. USEPA representatives describe the status of regulations and analytical needs related to characterization and regulation of sludge, sediment, and waste streams. Topics include quality ...

  • API RP 13D Standard for Exploration & Production

    The objective of this Recommended Practice (RP) is to provide a basic understanding of and guidance about drilling fluid rheology and hydraulics, and their application to drilling operations.The target audience for this RP covers both the office and wellsite engineer. The complexity of the equations used is such that a competent engineer can use a ...

  • API RP 13I Standard for Exploration & Production

    This International Standard provides procedures for the laboratory testing of both drilling fluid materials and drilling fluid physical, chemical and performance properties. It is applicable to both water-based and oil-based drilling fluids, as well as the base or 'make-up' fluid.It is not applicable as a detailed manual on drilling fluid control ...

  • API RP 13B-2 Standard for Exploration & Production

    This Recommended Practice provides standard procedures for determining the following characteristics of oil-based drilling fluids:a) drilling fluid density (mud weight);b) viscosity and gel strength;c) filtration;d) oil, water and solids contents;e) alkalinity, chloride content and calcium content;f) electrical stability;g) lime ...

  • API SPEC 13A Standard for Exploration & Production

    This International Standard covers physical properties and test procedures for materials manufactured for use in oil- and gas-well drilling fluids. The materials covered are barite, haematite, bentonite, nontreated bentonite, OCMA-grade bentonite, attapulgite, sepiolite, technical-grade low-viscosity carboxymethylcellulose (CMC-LVT), ...

  • Drilling Data Handbook

    The first edition of the Drilling Data Handbook was published in 1950. Over the more than six following decades the book has been constantly improved, adding lots of new technologies and equipment over the course of its eight updated editions. But its key principle is to remain familiar and friendly to ...
