ABSTRACT This experiment have two part which are part A and and part B. The objective for part A and part B are mud rheology determination using viscometer and determination of marsh funnel viscosity respectively. Rheology refers to the deformation and flow behavior of all forms of matter. It is an extremely important property of drilling muds, drill-in fluids, workover and completion fluids. In this experiment students are tasked to collect data consist of plastic viscosity, gel strength and yield point in order to determine how this fluid will flow under a variety of different conditions. Water based mud is used as the experimental fluid. In water based fluids, water quality plays an important role in how additives perform. Before the experiment begins, the water based mud will be stirred accordingly for the mud to be completely mixed. The water based mud will be tested in the viscometer with various revolutions per minute (rpm) for the acquisition of the parameters mentioned above. INTRODUCTION Rheology is a key property which influences different aspects of the drilling operation. Generally, the term of rheology is the study of on how matter deforms and flows behavior. For instance, plastic viscosity, gel strength and yield point are the measurements made on fluids which basically help to determine on how this fluid will flow under a several different conditions and situations. In term of geology, rheology is a particularly important in studies of moving ice, water, salt and magma, as well as deforming of rocks. Information or data collected is the significant in the design of circulating systems involved in order to accomplish in a certain desired objectives in drilling operations. Rheological also used to indicate the properties of a given fluid as in mud rheology. Rheology is an extremely important property of drilling
