References : Section 2.1.5, Figure 2.44 Report Procedure: The District Drilling Engineer has requested an analysis of mud types for wells in an area that has experienced frequent incidents of stuck pipe. Using the laboratory data provided by the Alpha Mud Company you are to prepare a memo style report to the District Drilling Engineer giving your recommendations. Your report is to have attachments that back up your conclusions, such as: 1. The Alpha Mud Company lab letter and lab data. 2. A plot of filtrate volume of all six samples on the same graph paper versus time and a second graph of filtrate volume verses square root of time. 3. A table that lists the API water loss and mud cake thickness for each sample. 4. A discussion of the effectiveness of Bentonite, Attapulgite, and CMC as filtration control additives, from a cost point of view. 5. A discussion of the type of mud cake observed for the mud components CMC, Bentonite, and Attapulgite. 6. Explain the reasoning behind your recommendations. * Note: Your supporting documents should be ordered in such a way as to make the report readable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
