Mike Morgenthaler has worked in the drilling fluids industry for more than 30 years. Mike worked for both Halliburton and Baker Hughes prior to forming a consulting firm to provide operators with a source for engineering expertise focused on optimizing solids control operations and lowering overall drilling costs. His experience includes work as a mud engineer, process design for centrifuge applications, extensive work on waste management in remote drilling locations, and managing solids control operations on multi-rig fleets in the shale plays.  He is the owner of Cutpoint, Inc. and has a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas.

Full Description

Course Objective

This course provides drilling management team members with the analytical tools needed to quantify the performance and the cost of solids control operations.  More importantly, the course explains the linkage between solids control, drilling fluids, and fluid related drilling waste.  A comprehensive approach is taught so that those attending will understand how changing solids control practices will affect drilling fluids cost and waste disposal costs.  The course aims to cut through the clutter of metrics used to report solids control performance enabling solids control best practices to be identified so that drilling costs are lowered without compromising drilling performance.
