    Abstract: Polymeric drilling fluids emulsions (PDFE) are very important because they are used as drilling fluid systems used in modern drilling operations. For low pressure and exhausted gas and oil reservoirs Oil-in-water (o/w) emulsion polymeric drilling fluids are used however for drilling completion and work over high pressure gauge wells Water-in-oil (w...

    Abstract: Surface waters consist of a complex mixture of ions and solutes which interact in a complex manner under different thermodynamic conditions. This study explored thermodynamic behavior of nitric acid/nitrous acid- selected nitrate-water systems on some fish ponds using Mixed-Solvent Electrolyte, MSE, which was applied to calculate phase equilibria, ...
