Australia’s oil and gas industry has held a critical place in the development of the country’s present-day economy. With the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG), crude oil, and condensate, Australia makes a small but significant contribution to the world’s global oil and gas supply. The gross value added by Australia’s oil and gas extraction industry has continued to increase over the past decade.
These newly developed wiper balls are made of natural rubber and can be used in a temperature range of 40°F (4°C) to 302°F (150°C). The ball has a parting stretch of 380 to 440%, which means it can pass through small restrictions without being damaged.

Foam wiper balls may be used to wipe the drill pipe or workstring to help ensure that scale does not remain on the ID.
Foam wiper balls may be pumped behind cement to help ensure fluid separation and to wipe sheath deposition from the workstring ID.
MERIT’s wiper foam ball can be loaded into drillpipe or tubing connections. It easily passes through internal upset restrictions such as mechanical setting tools, diverters, and liner running tools, and multiple balls can be pumped if necessary. Foam wiper balls have been used with all types of drilling and displacement fluids.
The customer was spending up to three extra hours on trips out of the hole to wipe out cement. They wanted to wipe a drill-pipe smooth after performing a shoe squeeze through 5-in. drill pipe with an 8-1/2-in. bit with three 20/64th nozzles installed. The squeeze was done at 9,200 (2804 m) TVD/MD with a bottom hole circulating temperature (BHCT) of 165°F. A 7-in. foam wiper ball was recommended because it can pass through a 1-in. restriction. The 7-in. foam wiper ball wiped out the drillpipe successfully and passed through the bit with little increase in pump pressure. The customer was very pleased with the wiping action and versatility of Merit’s foam wiper balls.
Multiple sizes of drillpipe needed to be wiped while spotting the cement plug. This would eliminate the need to send the pipe onshore for wiping and the risk of the cement sheath falling on top of MWD tools and plugging them. On a previous well, 37 joints of drill-pipe were sent for wiping due to concerns of cement scale buildup on the inside of the drillpipe. Merit provided a wiper ball that was pumped a er each plug, and it successfully wiped out 6-5/8-in., 5-in. and 3-1/2-in. drill pipe that was in the hole while setting each of these plugs.
Drill pipe id wipers foam ball is designed to wipe residual cement, drilling fluids or debris in drill pipes or tubing strings, which also can be used for fluid separation. Our product foam wiper balls could be pumped after cementing job to assist fluid separation and wipe the deposition within the tubular.

The Niger Delta Basin, also referred to as the Niger Delta province, is an extensional rift basin located in the Niger Delta and the Gulf of Guinea on the passive continental margin near the western coast of Nigeria with suspected or proven access to Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea and São Tomé and Príncipe. This basin is very complex, and it carries high economic value as it contains a very productive petroleum system. The Niger delta basin is one of the largest subaerial basins in Africa. It has a subaerial area of about 75,000 km2, a total area of 300,000 km2, and a sediment fill of 500,000 km3. The sediment fill has a depth between 9–12 km. It is composed of several different geologic formationsthat indicate how this basin could have formed, as well as the regional and large scale tectonics of the area. The Niger Delta Basin is an extensional basin surrounded by many other basins in the area that all formed from similar processes. The Niger Delta Basin lies in the south westernmost part of a larger tectonic structure, the Benue Trough. The other side of the basin is bounded by the Cameroon Volcanic Line and the transform passive continental margin.
Open cell foam ball technology is designed to wipe the ID’s of Casing, tubing and Drill pipe. Foam balls can separate fluids, chase a wiper dart to maximize wiping efficiency, or clean drill pipe during a bit trip. Made of natural foam rubber, the operating temperatures are 40 ̊F to (4 ̊C) to 300 ̊F (150 ̊C). Foam wiper balls have a parting stretch of 380 to 440%, which means it can pass through small restrictions without being damaged. It easily passes through internal upset restrictions such as mechanical setting tools, diverters, and liner running tools, and multiple balls can be pumped if necessary.

Petroleum industry in Nigeria
Nigeria is the largest oil and gas producer in Africa. Crude oil from the Niger delta basin comes in two types: light, and comparatively heavy – the lighter around 36 gravity and the heavier, 20–25 gravity. Both types are paraffinic and low in sulfur.
