CORRELATION SIMPLIFIES OBTAINING DOWNHOLE BRINE DENSITY

I.M. Kutasov Consultant Los Angeles A correlation has been developed to calculate the downhole brine density at various molal concentrations of NaCi. The suggested equation may reduce the time and cost of laboratory density tests. In earlier articles, we proposed an empirical equation of state (pressure-density-temperature dependence) for drilling muds and brines.1 2 I The suggested simple formula can be used to predict the density of water/oil base muds and brines at downhole conditions.
