Properties and application of Nigerian bentonite clay

01/07/2017· James et al. (2008) carried out a beneficiation and characterization study of bentonite clay sample obtained from Yola in Adamawa State, North-East Nigeria. Compositional study of this Yola bentonite revealed that the clay sample is a low-grade calcium montmorillonite and this is typical of other samples from regions that have been investigated ( James et al., 2008,Obaje, 2013,Nweke et al

Economic Evaluation of Beneficiating Nigerian Bentonite

05/08/2020· According to past studies, Nigerian Bentonites are found to be deficient in both fluid loss and rheological properties. Due to the deficiency of the Nigerian bentonite (NB), a good majority of bentonites used within Nigeria are imported. This research work seeks to evaluate the economic profitability of beneficiating the fluid loss and rheological properties of NB using periwinkle shell (PWS

A Review of Nigerian Bentonitic Clays as Drilling Mud

The heydays of bentonitic clay production in Nigeria occurred in the late 1950s when oil was first discovered. This was short lived as the advent of imported bentonite took the centre stage in the early 1960s. Since then, there has been no widespread use of the Nigerian bentonitic clay as drilling muds in Nigeria. In the recent past, precisely in 2001, the only major use of Nigerian bentonite

Suitability of Nigerian Bentonite in Drilling Fluid

Various rheological and filtration tests were carried out on both unbeneficiated and beneficiated local clay from Afuze, Nigeria using a six-speed Rheometer and API filter press respectively. Beneficiation involved the addition of sodium carbonate, caustic soda and starch to the mud formulations.Clay concentrations were varied from 20g/350ml to 60g/350ml. The test results showed that free
