Paper Title:
Modeling Gel Break-Time in Gravel Pack Fluids as a Function of Breaker and Activator Concentrations with Temperature
  Abstract

Break time results carried out for 60Ibs/Mgal linear gel at different breaker and activator concentrations with temperatures for gravel pack jobs done in the past was used in this study. Temperature range investigated was from 180oF to 215oF. A mathematical model was developed for break time prediction as a function of temperature and breaker/activator concentrations. The model was regressed with experimental data using the regression tool in Microsoft Excel. Results of the model prediction were validated with experimental data. The model break time predicted showed good agreement with experimental values with less than 2% deviation. The model equation developed will help predict the break time at the various breaker and activator concentrations at different temperatures. This will help in saving time associated with the rigour in actual laboratory experimental design and testing. This will no doubt improve operational efficiency and service quality delivery.
