Auditing drilling fluids and cement slurries


Audit in oil services is an independent testing of physico-chemical parameters of drilling fluids and cement slurries required to enhance the efficiency of well construction and field development carried out by oil service companies, attracting various contractors for corresponding stages of well construction and well operation.


Objectives and outputs

Gathering and processing of the objective, actual and accurate data regarding:
  • The quality of materials used while preparing both drilling fluids and cement slurries;
  • The parameters of drilling fluids and cement slurries;
