This report discuss about the method of the invention and several studies about lost circulation material. The objective on this project is to proposed palm oil fronds as drilling fluid additive to control the lost circulation during the drilling program. Malaysia is the second largest of exporter palm oil in the world and by this invention the abandon of palm oil fronds can be used as lost circulation material. The report discusses of the lost circulation problems, the lost circulation materials and the characterization of the parameters of drilling fluid. It also confers the methodologies for LCM to resolve severe lost circulation problems and designing the mud samples, the mud densities, the rheological tests, and the filtration performance volume tests. Tests have been conducted in accordance with the API 13 B and the related equipments were mixer, mud balance and viscometer. Properties measured through this experiment such as density, plastic viscosity, yield point, 10 seconds and 10 minutes gel strength and filtration rate. The experiment shows that, palm oil fronds have characteristic as lost circulation material as comparing with nut plug and corn cob. This report present the data collection, analysis and discussion of results obtain.
