Title (EN) DRILLING FLUID ADDITIVES AND FRACTURING FLUID ADDITIVES CONTAINING CELLULOSE NANOFIBERS AND/OR NANOCRYSTALS
(FR) ADDITIFS POUR FLUIDES DE FORAGE ET POUR FLUIDES DE FRACTURATION CONTENANT DES NANOFIBRES ET/OU DES NANOCRISTAUX DE CELLULOSE
Abstract:
(EN) This disclosure provides drilling fluids and additives as well as fracturing fluids and additives that contain cellulose nanofibers and/or cellulose nanocrystals. In some embodiments, hydrophobic nanocellulose is provided which can be incorporated into oil-based fluids and additives. These water-based or oil-based fluids and additives may further include lignosulfonates and other biomass-derived components. Also, these water-based or oil-based fluids and additives may further include enzymes. The drilling and fracturing fluids and additives described herein may be produced using the AVAP® process technology to produce a nanocellulose precursor, followed by low-energy refining to produce nanocellulose for incorporation into a variety of drilling and fracturing fluids and additives.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des additifs et des fluides de forage, ainsi que des additifs et des fluides de fracturation contenant des nanofibres et/ou des nanocristaux de cellulose. Dans certains modes de réalisation, il s'agit de nanocellulose hydrophobe pouvant être incorporée dans des fluides et des additifs à base d'huile. Ces fluides et ces additifs à base d'eau ou à base d'huile peuvent, en outre, comprendre des lignosulfonates et d'autres composants issus de la biomasse. Ces fluides et ces additifs à base d'eau ou à base d'huile peuvent également comporter, en plus, des enzymes. Les additifs et fluides de forage et de fracturation de l'invention peuvent être produits par la technologie des processus AVAP® destinée à produire un précurseur de nanocellulose, cela étant suivi d'une étape de raffinage économe en énergie permettant la production de nanocellulose destinée à être incorporée dans divers additifs et fluides de forage et de fracturation.
