Drilling mud is one of the important tools in the application of soil drilling to achieve the planned target. Initially, the process only used water to lift the cutting sand with the progress of the times drilling mud began to be used. This drilling mud works by circulating it using a powerful mud pump.
The main preparation before conducting soil drilling is to perform soil testing first. Testing is carried out to assess the soil structure, examine the components contained in the soil (rocks,sand, microbes), measure the groundwater pressure using instruments such as piezometers, and assess the environmental conditions around the work site.
The selection of drilling mud systems is closely related to the properties of mud that are appropriate for addressing the encountered problems in drilling. Drilling mud is an important factor in a drilling operation that affects drilling speed, efficiency, safety, and drilling costs.
The functions of drilling mud are as follows:
Lifting cuttings to the surface
Forming a thin and smooth mud cake
Balancing formation pressure
Cleaning cuttings from the bottom of the borehole
Holding cuttings when circulation stops
As an information medium
Supporting part of the weight of the drillstring and casing
Drilling mud is commonly applied in the rapidly growing industrial drilling sector worldwide, especially in Indonesia. Drilling systems are used for the extraction of petroleum, foundation construction techniques that utilize drilling machines as tools (bore piles), testing groundwater pressure by conducting drilling first and followed by testing using instruments. There are several types of drilling, including:
Straight Hole Drilling
Vertical and Horizontal Drilling
