Mud Engineer

Davidson Consulting


Ref: OP507-81

Job description / Role

The main duty of a mud engineer is to create the various combinations of mud that will be used during the different stages of the drilling process. They also might have additional responsibilities, including recommending drill bits and assisting excavating technicians in the overall safety of the drilling process.

When creating the drilling fluids, mud engineers often use predetermined geological data obtained by geologists and drilling engineers. They conduct standardized testing during the drilling process and use a variety of methods to change the mud's viscosity, including adjusting the mud's temperature, pH balance and chemical components.


A large majority of drilling fluid engineers work in the extraction of oil and gas. Often, oil and gas companies want to calculate the estimated costs of drilling and extraction versus projected profits. Since mud engineers play a large role in the extraction process, they may have the additional duty of calculating a portion of the costs associated with the drilling process. This cost estimating is often done in conjunction with other drilling engineers and technicians.
