The mud tank system should remove 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.

Application of Water Based Drilling Fluid Management

Method for efficiently recycling water based drilling fluids has been developed. This recycling is conducted in a way beneficial both for the drilling fluid supplier and the operator. Contaminated fluid (slop) is brought back onshore for treatment and reusable fluids from the slop treatment are brought back into the drilling fluids.
