Drilling fluids mud pumps and conditioning equipment
Drilling Fluids, Mud Pumps, And Conditioning Equipment by Kate Van DykeThis series covers the entire scope of rotary drilling operations in five units of technical information and review questions. These units are published in cooperation with the International Association of Drilling Contractors. In some cases, previous editions are available in Spanish, while supplies last, for $14. Open-book comprehensive tests covering Units I, II, III, and V of the Rotary Drilling Series are available.This totally new lesson combines Mud Pumps and Conditioning Equipment and Circulating Systems. It offers a better understanding of the operation, care, and maintenance of mud pumps and mud conditioning equipment. Discusses the composition, testing, and treatment of drilling fluids and the route of circulation. All measurements are given in both U.S. and SI units. Many illustrations, a complete glossary, and review questions and answers are also provided.
Learning about drilling fluids, mud pumps and conditioning equipment is required basic knowledge which personnel working on the rig must understand. In the old day, you may need to take a lot of time to learn this knowledge. Today, I would like to review this book so you will know what inside and what you will you get from it. What will you learn from this book? These are brief contents which you will learn from the book. Circulating systems on the drilling — function of drilling fluid and circulating system, hydraulic of mud circulating system, air circulating system, etc. Drilling mud — function of drilling mud, type of drilling mud used in drilling industry, composition of drilling mud, how to test drilling fluids, equipment for mud testing.
In geotechnical engineering , drilling fluid , also called drilling mud , is used to aid the drilling of boreholes into the earth. Often used while drilling oil and natural gas wells and on exploration drilling rigs , drilling fluids are also used for much simpler boreholes, such as water wells. One of the functions of drilling mud is to carry cuttings out of the hole. The three main categories of drilling fluids are: water-based muds WBs , which can be dispersed and non-dispersed; non-aqueous muds, usually called oil-based muds OBs ; and gaseous drilling fluid, in which a wide range of gases can be used. Along with their formatives, these are used along with appropriate polymer and clay additives for drilling various oil and gas formations. The main functions of drilling fluids include providing hydrostatic pressure to prevent formation fluids from entering into the well bore, keeping the drill bit cool and clean during drilling, carrying out drill cuttings, and suspending the drill cuttings while drilling is paused and when the drilling assembly is brought in and out of the hole.
