Advancements in networking systems and computing, surface sensors’ design and sample analysis have made these units quite popular in the 21st century. Though most commonly used in petroleum exploration, mud logging is also used when exploring minerals or drilling water wells where the drilling fluid is the circulating medium used to lift the hole.
Since its commercial introduction in 1939, mud logging units have become a center for monitoring formation responses to drilling process. Historically, mud logging units were the most basic type of well log. The mud logger’s command, primarily, was to describe the lithology of formation and record depth. Eventually, the scope of mud logging has expanded as additional sensors, such as weight on bit, gas chromatographs and mud pit level indicators, have begun to bring more data into logging units.

Over the coming years, the demand for these equipment will gradually increase as according to experts, the demand for natural gas is expected to increase by more than 70% by 2025, i.e. from 90 to 156 trillion cubic feet. Also, the greatest demand for natural gas would be coming from emerging economies. Given the current consumption rate, emerging economies in Asia are expected to almost triple.
However, sometimes compressed air is used as a circulating medium instead of a mud logger, which is far by most commonly used substance. Thus, an alternative and more accurate name used is “surface logging“ and those who carry out the procedure are referred to as pore pressure engineers or formulation evaluation engineers. Primarily, mud logging strives to successfully identify potentially productive sites for drilling by looking for out hydrocarbon-rich formations.
Due to increasing energy consumption, the demand for oil & gas refineries has increased globally, which are required to meet this rising demand. For instance, Russia is the largest producer of natural gas. In Asia-Pacific, Indonesia is the largest producer of natural gas and South Korea, China and India are relatively small consumers of natural gas in the region. The largest producer of natural gas in Africa is Nigeria and Egypt is the second largest producer of natural gas in Africa. In Middle East, UAE and Iran are major producers of natural gas in the region.
Companies are implementing new technologies for these equipment to maintain their position. Most of the big manufacturers are investing in this technology on account of increasing demand from oil & gas sector. Mud logging requires a good deal of diligence and attention and thus, companies are also investing in training of their employees to build their skills in this area.
