DRILLING FLUID & COMPLETION FLUID, a bimonthly (CN 13-1118/TE, ISSN 1001-5620, and postal distributing code 18-423), was first published in 1983. Published at home and abroad, it is the only academic journal comprehensively reporting drilling fluid and completion fluid technology. It is sponsored by China National Petroleum Corporation, co-sponsored by China National Petroleum Corporation Bohai Drilling Engineering Co., Ltd. and PetroChina Huabei Oilfield Company, and undertook by the Research Institute of Engineering Technology of CNPC Bohai Drilling Engineering Co., Ltd. It is an A4-sized, 132-page full-color periodical issued at the end of every two months.
The purpose of this journal is to promote the development and progress of drilling fluid and completion fluid technology and to serve for the exploration and development of petroleum in China by paying intense attention to the development of relevant science and technology abroad, publishing new theories, new academic achievements, papers on new products and new methods, and promoting the technical exchange and contention of different schools of thoughts, all centered around the requirements imposed on the domain of drilling fluids and completion fluids by the oil and gas exploration and development of China.
This journal publishes research work, literature reviews, new technologies and new methods on fluids used in drilling, cementing, completion and production stimulation, as well as the treatment of waste fluids. Columns set include monographs, drilling fluids, cementing fluids, fracturing fluids, acidizing fluids, completion fluids, industrial news and newsletters. This journal is for diverse audiences: researchers and technical service personnel in the fields of petroleum, geology, coal and chemical engineering etc.
