mud

the liquid circulated through the wellbore during rotary drilling and workover operations. In addition to its function of bringing cuttings to the surface, drilling mud cools and lubricates the bit and drill stem, protects against blowouts by holding back subsurface pressures, and deposits a mud cake on the wall of the borehole to prevent loss of fluids to the formation. See drilling fluid. ...

Mud

Mud is drilling fluid. Mud consists mainly as a mixture of water, or oil distillate, and 'heavy' minerals such as Bentonite or Barites. Mud is pumped into a well at densities calculated to provide a hydrostatic pressure sufficient to overcome downhole formation pressures such as gas kick. The mud is continuously circulated down to the bit, and returns in the annular space outside the drill-string, bringing with it rock cuttings for inspection and keeping the well clean. Mud is also engineered to maintain a thin protective layer of filter-cake on the bore hole wall, but without excessive weight which would decrease the weight on the bit and hence penetration (see Drill String). Wrongly configured mud could also possibly lead to differential sticking and formation damage. Mud is pumped from the mud pit / tank into the drill stem. On return from down hole the mud is recovered and the shale shakers remove rock cuttings, it can then be re-circulated. ...
