Mud Logging

As an extension of MB Drilling Fluids (MBDF), MB Petroleum also provides mud logging services. MB Petroleum has worked closely with Petron in the USA in developing mud logging equipment. MB Mud Logging provides clients with real time drilling information that is useful with drilling exploration wells where decision making is essential to save costs.

Geological Functions

Services provided include geological and formation evaluation based on continuous cuttings description, fluorescence testing and analysis of Chromatograph and Total Gas readings. Monitoring of the drilling operation, detection and reaction to any critical changes in drilling parameters, thus facilitating early recognition of potential problems. Data acquisition, display, storage and processing information is instantly duplicated at the Driller's monitor on the rig floor and in the Toolpusher's or the company representative's office. A comprehensive software library of programs that yield information on formation pore pressure, fracture gradients and hydraulics, providing further technical assistance. A record of bit usage and cost is made with the compilation of a final well report.

Surface Data Measurement

Measurement and data recording include depth, bit location, rate of penetration, hookload, weight on bit, RPM, rotary torque, pump pressure, casing pressure, pump-strokes, pit volumes, flow rate, mud weight and mud temperature. Options include mud conductivity, pH and electromagnetic flow meter readings.

Gas Analysis

Gases are separated from the mud by a specially designed constant flow extractor placed at the shale shaker. The gas/air mixture is analyzed by TCD-based Field Chromatograph or Total Gas equipment and more complex FID-based analyzers.

A new Production Services Department is Born

To answer the ever increasing call for Multi Phase metering and boosting services, MB Production Services has created a new service department: MPT.


MB Rig 01 completed a record of 4 LTI free years. The milestone became possible because of the excellent supervision, dedication and commitment of the Rig crew and the support and encouragement of the head office. The achievement also underlined the fact that the MB group's motto Safety First was no empty slogan but a living reality, a way of life and a way of doing business.
