This project in its present form is the proposal to scrutinize on the development of eco-friendly drilling fluid by using Palm Fatty Acid Distillate (PFAD) as a based in oil-based mud. The initial idea was to analyse the characterization of biodiesel (PFAD) as continuous phase in drilling fluid. Rheology test and mud tests were then conducted for PFAD-based drilling fluid and conventional oil-based mud (mineral diesel), which will lead to the justification of the PFAD-based drilling fluid adaptability level in replacing the conventional oil-based mud. The PFAD-based drilling fluid is then will be tested with different weight percentage of drilling fluid additive in order to study the effect of each additive on its behaviour. The contributions of this project are twofold. This project is not only proposed potential alternative that preserves oil-based mud advantages, but also promoting eco-friendly project by using biodiesel as a based.
