One of the vital factors in successful drilling operation is drilling fluid or also known as mud. Drilling fluid consist of many component. One of the main components is fluid loss control or also known as lost circulation material (LCM). Lost circulation material is a drilling fluid additive added into drilling fluid to control the drilling fluid or mud fluid loss into the formation during drilling operation. The main objective of the whole project is to find an alternative to conventional and commercial lost circulation material currently being used in drilling fluid. The scope of study mainly investigates rice husk sample taken from an area near Pasir Mas, Kelantan and evaluates its performance and behavior in drilling fluids. This project is conducted on experimental basis. Sample preparation, specific gravity evaluation, and moisture content evaluations are determined before evaluation of performance as drilling fluid additive against standard LCM product
