GLOBAT MUD SCHOOL is built on extensive real-world experience in every aspect of utilizing drilling and completion fluids. We deliver the insights from our seasoned industry experts to help with your most complex challenges.
You will be taught how to work as a mud engineer both in the office, at the mud plant, in the mud lab and on drilling and workover rigs
The course provides the rudiments necessary to spud a well, drill a well (whether it is a shallow well or a complex, high pressure well), plug and abandon a well, complete a well and/or work-over a well.
Participants also are taught the major roles of a mud engineer such:
- Conducting a standardized mud test/check
- Interpreting measured fluid properties
- Competency for critical fluid related rig operations such as displacements, slugging a pipe, pumping sweeps and creating sweep reports, drilling out cement, etc
- Building various mud systems that would be used during different stages of the drilling process and/or because of different subsurface geology
- Utilizing predetermined geological and engineering data obtained by geologists and drilling engineers.
- Writing a mud program
- Calculating costs associated with the drilling fluid and related processes
- Finalizing an end of well recapitulation (“mud recap”)
- Running and supervising a mud plant
- Writing tender requirements for fluid and associated services
Additionally, attendees will be given basic cementing and waste management knowledge
They will also be taught how to have good interpersonal skills and collaborate amicably with all personnel; both qualities being essential for a successful mud engineering career.
