I put in soda ash and I’m good, right? This week, drilling expert Brock Yordy answers a question from Mike about mud mixing issues on drilling jobs. It’s Ask Brock episode 153.

“We need a good shear point,” Yordy says. “We need a good jet hopper. We need to be looking at how that is configured and make sure we’re getting a great deal of shear right as it’s getting into the mud pan and as it rotates through.”

In this episode, he also discusses

  • water testing for drilling fluids
  • the order of addition for a good drilling fluid
  • water quality
  • surface water vs. other sources
  • and other topics
