Abstract
The energy of a nation is largely conditioned by the extent of prospective, surveyed and extracted oil and gas reserves and other natural resources. Hence this is the main source of somewhere economy. The oil and gas sector in somewhere has many aspects where it functions; firstly, the confirmation of any natural resources on the earth crust is through drilling. Rheological specifications of drilling mud which contains nano zinc oxide (1gr) in high temperature – high pressure viscometer are considered in this work to simulate the drilling conditions occurred in deep wells. Shear stress versus shear rate is evaluated in this paper. In addition the effect of aging time and temperature on the stability power of drilling mud is considered. Results show the shear stress is decreasing with tha adding the nano particles.
