Engineering science fair project:
The use of multi-frequency acoustics to improve production in oil and gas wells

Project Information
Title: The use of multi-frequency acoustics to improve production in oil and gas wells
Subject: Engineering
Grade level: Middle School - Grades 7-9
Academic Level: Ordinary
Project Type: Experimental
Cost: Low
Awards: 1st Place, Canada Wide Virtual Science Fair ($400)
Affiliation: Canada Wide Virtual Science Fair
Year: 2013
Materials, Techniques and Concepts: speaker, electronic amplifier, general laboratory equipment
Description: A flow chamber divided in half by a porous material laden with solid particles was utilized. Fluid was directed through the chamber at consistent rate and pressure and different kinds of acoustic signals were introduced to the fluid on the exhaust side of the chamber. The results were measured in the form of the amount of solids knocked out of the porous block at the end of each test. Useful to increase productivity of wells and to reduce the price of skin buildup removal.
