Nanotechnology is increasing capturing the attention of material researches as this technology pushes the limits and boundaries of the pure material itself. Various material enhancement can be done through nanotechnology and drilling fluid for oil and gas explorations are no exceptions as well. Through this paper, it is desired to study the effect of alternative base fluids for the current conventional base fluid but with the addition of nanoparticles. Besides that, it is desired to study the effect of multiple nanoparticles loadings into base fluid to determine the value of enhancements to the base fluid. Researchers had conducted various experiments of nanoparticles dispersion into individual fluids which are unrelated to drilling mud and also into water-based drilling mud. However, no studies had been conducted as said for comparison of different base fluids at different nanoparticle loadings. This spurs the intention of this paper to investigate the effects of the said scenario.
