Wyo-Ben Inc. has set the dates for its Mud School 2002, recently announcing that the weeklong session will be held Sept. 9-13. This event has brought attendees from around the world, and positions are limited to the first 14 registrants. It begins in Billings, Mont., and moves to Greybull, Wyo.

Geared toward a hands-on approach, Mud School participants will have the opportunity to tour bentonite mining and processing operations, and work in the lab to understand the practical aspects of drilling fluid technology and bore hole sealing. Subjects covered include bentonite charactersitcs, grouting and well abandonment, polymers, and foams. For more information, call 800-548-7055 or visit www.wyoben.com.
