* Assaalamualaikum and a very good evening ladies and gentlemen. * Thank you for coming today, i hope all of you can gain some benefits from this informative presentation. * I have one question to ask before i proceed with my presentation, how many of you intent to work in oil and gas industry in future? i believe each one of us has a big opportunity to work in oil and gas industry. * So i am here to present about drilling mud which is one of the most important things in oil and gas industry. * Allow me to introduce myself first, my name is Mohamad Nazrul bin Mohd Salleh, currently in 3rd year 2nd sem taking petroleum engineering. * What makes me capable to present about drilling mud? Because i am petroleum engineering student, and i had taken a course that specifically focuses on drilling mud. Furthermore, i have done a lot of research regarding this topic.

* The purpose and objective.....
* Throughout this presentation, there are three main points that i will explain to all of you 1) the general function of the mud, 2) the mechanism of the mud, 3) the type of mud been used in drilling process. * First of all, what is mud? Mud is a fluid that keeps on circulating in the well throughout drilling process. * One of the most critical roles of drilling mud is as a lubricant. While drilling process took place, there are lots of friction and heat been generated. So mud is needed in order to cool down the temperature and also to reduce the frictions. * The mud also will collect all the debris or the drilled cuttings from the wellbore and transport it to the surface. * The other function of drilling mud is to maintain the stability of the well in terms of friction and pressure. * If the pressure of the well is much higher compare to the pressure provide by the mud itself, the wall of the well will have the potential to collapse

* Enough with the explanation on the function of mud, now I would like to share with you...
