What is Silica Sand?

Silica Sand is quartz that over time, through the work of water and wind, has been broken down into tiny granules.. Commercial Silica Sand is widely used as a proppant by companies involved in oil and natural gas recovery in conventional and

Sandstone Reservoir Wettability Alteration Due to Water

The amount of sand produced and the contact angle in SSW was higher than the Nanofluid. The silica nanoparticles reduced the contact angle (more water wetting) and by sitting between the sand particles, more than 40%, it reduced sand production.

What Is Silica Sand & How Is It Different From Regular Sand?

Silica sand, also known as quartz sand, white sand, or industrial sand, is made up of two main elements: silica and oxygen. Specifically, silica sand is made up of silicon dioxide (SiO2). The most common form of SiO2 is quartz a chemically inert and relatively hard mineral.

Wettability contrasts between fresh and weathered diesel

Jan 01, 2013· Two silica sand size distributions (Opta Minerals Inc., Waterdown, ON) were used in the capillary pressure–saturation experiments: (i) 50% by weight mixture of F32 and F50 for experimental system validation (mean grain size = 0.42 mm, uniformity index = 2.3), and (ii) F70 for detailed analysis (mean grain size = 0.18 mm, uniformity index = 1

(PDF) Wettability Alteration of Sandstone Cores by Alumina

The treatment was effective in altering the sand pack wettability from an oil-wet to a strongly water-wet condition as indicated by a significant reduction in the residual water saturation and a displacement to the right of the oil relative permeability curve and the crossover point. 1. INTRODUCTION reservoir rock to a more water-wet state

Mechanical and Wettability Performance of Sand/HDPE

Polymer/composite sheets were developed using sand as the filler, and high-density polyethylene (HDPE), by melting extrusion in a melt blender followed by compression molding. The effects of addition of filler, and the addition of polyethylene grafted maleic anhydride (PE-g-MA) as the compatibilizing agent were investigated by observing the morphology, the mechanical performance as well as the

Wettability Measurements on 3D Printed Sandstone Analogues

Oct 29, 2018· Additive manufacturing technology, or 3D printing, with silica sand has enabled the manufacture of porous rock analogues for the use in experimental studies of geomechanical properties of reservoir rocks. The accurate modelling of the fluid flow phenomena within a reservoir and improving the performance of hydrocarbon recovery require an understanding of physical and chemical interactions

Dynamic wettability alteration for combined low salinity

Jun 23, 2020· Dynamic contact angle studies appear that slightly wettability alteration towards more water wet condition during LSWF measurements is governed by at least two factors including the expansion of the diffuse double layer between the silica surface and the oil interfaces as well as the stability of the water film by increasing the disjoining
