Increase the drilling efficiency of the drilling, such as nanoparticles and polymers with additives, is one of the most efficient in the drilling operation. In this project, the impact of boehmite nanoparticles and polymer combination of xanthan on the drilling mud has been studied. Rheological properties of drilling mud (plastic viscosity, yield point and viscosity) boehmite nanoparticles and polymer composition in various concentrations by Rotary Brookfield viscometer model DV-III Ultra are measured. Test results on the rheological properties of muds to the point of the optimal concentration range is equivalent to 0.06 grams boehmite nanoparticles show.

Keywords : Boehmite nanoparticles, drilling mud (fluid), rheological properties, Xanthan gum polymer
