Laboratory Experiment No. 8 Density Adjusting Objective: To prepare a mud with desire density using unknown sample Lab Procedure: 1. Use 500 CC of the unknown sample and mix it for 5 minutes. 2. Measure the density of unknown sample using mud balance. 3. Calculate the amount of clay in grams using following equation: m= PV PmVm clay 9.2= me + mud P SG x8.33 PP9 MC + Vmud m1 + m2 V= m 100P = Specific P Pc V1 + V2 mud clay gracity 4. Where, density (p) in gr/cc, mass (m) in gr and volume (V) in CC. 5. The first component is the unknown mud sample and second component is clay. 6. Using mud balance measure mud density in ppg. 7. Measure plastic viscosity and apparent viscosity. Record 600 and 300 rpm readings. 8. Clean and return all equipment to their respective place. Graphs: 1. Plot plastic viscosity (cp) for each sample using "Column Chart". 2. Plot apparent viscosity (cp) for each sample using "Column Chart" 3. Plot Yield point (lb/100 ft2) for each sample using "Column Chart".

This experiment investigates the preparation of a mud with desire density using unknown sample.

The main theory of this experiment is based on mixing an unknown sample with some other known components and additives such as water, Barite, Aquagel, Quickgel and Zeogel to achieve a value for density of the mud that engineer would ultimately design for the drilling operation. The equation that is used to relate the mud density to mass...
