Handling of HDD-Muds and Laboratory Training


One essential element to successfully perform horizontal directional drillings is the correct choice and application of the HDD drilling
fluid. Fundamental knowledge about mud techniques and the properties of the drilling fluid and its circulation are also important
for the operator.

In a three-day seminar called “ Mud Technology”, the participants will be imparted fundamental knowledge concerning the aforementioned issues and other special topics. In addition to a theoretical part, first of all practical applications are planned, like for
example handling a Marsh hopper or a rotational viscometer. The participants will be instructed about these practical applications in
form of a laboratory training during the seminar.




The seminar’s objective is to train qualified personnel, like for example machine operators or site managers, as “specialist in
mud techniques at HDD construction projects”. The lecturers of this seminar will be instructors from Bohrmeisterschule Celle or
experts from the service industry for drilling fluids.

At the end of the seminar a written success monitoring is planned.
If the participants successfully pass this they will receive a certificate that they acquired requisite qualification as “specialist
in mud techniques at HDD construction projects”.

The event is held annually in February.
