The drilling mud is a mixture of water, clay, and some chemical additives, which is pumped down the drill pipe and drill bit while drilling, to cool the drill bit and lubricate the drill pipe as it keeps turning. The mud also serves as a plaster to prevent the wall of the bore hole from crumbling or collapsing.
The dry-hole cost, also known as drilling cost, is the total cost of drilling a well, no matter whether the drillers find any oil or gas. If any energy resources are found and extracted from the well, completion costs are added to the dry-hole costs to calculate overall costs.
Gas-cut mud is a formed when drilling mud gets aerated or charged with gas from formations down hole, forming bubbles in the drilling fluid. The formation of gas-cut mud is an indication of commercial quantities of gas present in the formation.
Hydraulic Fracturing is a method of inducing fractures and fissures in the formation to force the strata apart, aimed at stimulating oil and gas production from a formation of low permeability.
