In addition to the most common mud systems discussed previously, there are other muds that do not fall neatly into one category or another in the classification scheme.Continue reading “Special drilling Muds”
The Mud tanks system consists of equipment on board that contributes to the storage, mixing, circulation and purification of drilling fluid. Drilling fluid is very expensive and large volumes are used in connection with drilling a well. It is therefore desirable to reuse drilling mud.
Mud Cleaning System
The mud tank system removes drilling cuttings that come up from the hole along with the drilling mud so that the cleaned mud can be returned to the well. If the mud does not have the proper properties in relation to the well, it can result in major damage to the well and the drilling equipment. After the cleaning process, the drilling mud is carefully checked to make sure that the cleaning system has done a satisfactory job.Continue reading “Mud Tanks System”
Solids control may be defined as the control of the quantity and quality of suspended solids in the drilling fluid so as to reduce the total well cost.Continue reading “Solids Control”
