Dr. Orji, Ikodiya

Discipline: Science
Synthesis and Characterization of Synthetic Base Fluids for Drilling Mud Formulations using locally available Raw Materials
Contribution to knowledge:
The study synthesized two synthetic base fluids (SBFs), Butyl Laurate and Isopropyl Laurate with the capacity to replace the drilling fluids currently in use in the drilling industry and another two fluids; Ethyl Laurate and Propyl Laurate which showed promise as potential candidates for synthetic base fluids with inclusion of appropriate additives.
Dr. Orji, Ikodiya, was jointly supervised by Prof. Onyewuchi Akaranta & Dr. Millicent U. Ibezim-Ezeani both of the Department of Pure and Industrial Chemistry, University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
