Drilling Fluid Specialists, aka mud men, are one of the key personnel on a drilling rig. Tenured Drilling Fluid Specialists have a broad spectrum of skills that allows them to understand what is taking place during the drilling process. They must know what happens at surface level, as well as, what down-hole reports to them via the properties of the drilling fluid and other elements that arise from the earth. The main responsibility of a Drilling Fluid Specialist is to create the finest and safest possible drilling fluid that works in the advantage of drilling, rather than against it. We want to equip you with these skills.
