Viscosity Control for the Upstream Market
21 Apr 2015 - 12:30

This white paper focuses on viscosity, one of the basic measurement techniques affecting different key operations within the upstream market.


A closer look at different parts of the upstream chain reveals that online viscosity measurement and control coupled with appropriate laboratory rheological evaluations create substantial innovation opportunities. The current downturn in the oil and gas industry provides great opportunities for retrenching and focusing on the cost structure, rather than just increasing volume.


The implementation of proper technologies to intensify cost reduction and productivity enhancement are the key challenges for the future.
