Current experience shows, it is often impossible to fulfill certain functional tasks that are essential in challenging drilling and production environments using conventional macro and micro type fluid additives due to their inadequate physical, mechanical, chemical, thermal and environmental characteristics. Hence, the industry is looking for physically small, chemically and thermally stable for designing smart fluids to use virtually in all areas of oil and gas exploration. Due to totally different and highly enhanced physio-chemical, electrical, thermal, hydrodynamic properties and interaction potential of nanomaterials compared to their parent materials, the nanos are considered to be the most promising material of choice for smart fluid design for oil and gas field application. This project will describe the formulation and preliminary test results of graphene enhancement as an additional nano- additive for drilling fluids. This project is basically to test whether graphene material enhancement can give a significant improvement to the conventional oil based drilling fluid it terms of its rheological properties and performance
