Tutor description

The main purpose of this experiment is to determine the effect of contamination of Gypsum(CaSO4 – 2H2O) to the density, pH changes, Plastic Viscosity (PV) and Yield Point (Yp) of water based mud. Gypsum is one of the contaminate that may affect drilling fluid properties.

Gypsum is one of the contaminate that may affect drilling fluid properties. The experiment started by preparing 200ml based mud in a drilling mud container and the drilling fluid initially tested for weight, pH value, PV and Yp by using viscometer and mud balance. After the values recorded, 5 grams of Gypsum were added in the container that contains water based mud. The mud containing Gypsum was stirred for
