Cuttings Bed Erosion
MetadataShow full item record
The growth of cuttings beds in horizontal and highly inclined wells in the wellbore is one of the main problems in oil and gas industry. The main purpose of this project is to find the flow velocity at which the erosion begins and to analyze the erosion threshold phenomenon by the simple, yet authentic experimental investigation. Cuttings bed resting time, its composition and compressive strenght were investigated, results discussed and future improvements proposed.
