Use of Nanoparticles for Reducing the Permeability of Fine-Grained Rocks Such as Shales

Background During the drilling of wellbores into the earth, certain types of low permeability formations (such as shale) are encountered, become weakened, and often collapse into the wellbore. It was estimated in 1996 that such problems costs the oil and gas industry over $500 million per year. Today that number is expected to have doubled due to the complexity of wells being drilled Studies have shown that the cause of these failures can be traced to the invasion of the low permeability clay
