The cuttings were taken from the shaker after they were separated from the drilling mud. Each type of cutting tells us something about the formation and the downhole conditions at which the hole is being drilled. Sample No 3 and 4-A: In the first sample, it was observed that the cuttings had a rounded shape, which is a consequence of swelling (shale swelling). This type of cuttings indicates that the mud must be chemically treated in order not to allow shale to swell up. For separation of these cuttings from the mud it is important to inclinate the screens in the shaker so that no accumulation of cuttings occur. Sample No 1-D:
