Mud Logging unit, mud logging cabin
Since its commercial introduction in 1939, the mud logging unit has become a hub for monitoring formation responses to the drilling process. Initially, the mud logger's mandate was to record the depth and describe the lithology of formations encountered by the drill bit then determine whether those formations contained hydrocarbons. However, the scope of mud logging has expanded as additional sensors brought more data into the logging unit—such as gas chromatographs, weight-on-bit and mud pit level indicators. Basic mud logging services now typically track drilling rates, lithology, visual hydrocarbon indicators, total combustible gas in mud and individual hydrocarbon compounds in the gas along with numerous drilling parameters. The mud logger monitors and evaluates a broad range of surface indicators to compile a concise record of subsurface geology, hydrocarbons encountered and significant drilling events. These days, the term surface logging is sometimes used to encompass a range of enhanced mud logging services that incorporate advanced sensor and computing technology to provide monitoring for wellbore stability and early kick detection.
The practice of mud logging relies heavily on the mud circulation system. High-pressure mud pumps draw mud, or drilling fluid, from surface tanks and direct it downhole through the drillpipe. The mud exits the drill string through nozzles in the bit. As a bit drills through the subsurface, the rock it grinds—along with water, oil or gas in the formation—is carried back up the hole by the drilling fluid. Upon reaching the surface, the fluid exits through a flowline above the blowout preventer and is deposited over a vibrating mesh screen at the shale shaker, which separates formation cuttings from the liquid mud. The liquid portion of the drilling fluid falls through the screens to the mud pits, ready to be pumped back into the well; the rock cuttings on the shaker screen provide the basis for determining downhole lithology.

ABS guildline for portable offshore accommodation modules
The installation of modular buildings for use as living quarters, industrial spaces, and workshops has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. Irrespective of the amount of time that portable modules are installed onboard, the potential risks to personnel within these buildings can be comparable to those within a traditional living quarters structure.
Due to the transient nature of portable accommodation modules, it is possible that the buildings may be installed on a number of different types of vessels and offshore units over their life. In recognizing that the ABS class requirements differ based on the type of host vessel or facility, this Guide has been created to outline the process for the design and survey of the modules and to establish the requirements for modules which can be used on any category of offshore drilling unit, production facility, barge, steel vessel, or high speed craft.
Class Approval Process
The ABS approval process for accommodation modules is a four-step process as outlined below:
• Design Review of the Module
• Survey of the Module at Fabrication Facility
• Design Review for Installation Approval
• Survey onboard Host Vessel
The ABS review process of the module commences with drawings and documentation detailing the module’s general arrangements, structural fire protection, electrical configuration, structural design, and machinery and piping systems being submitted to the ABS technical office for review. Upon completion of the review, drawings will be returned to the submitter and forwarded to the attending ABS Surveyor. Receipt of the drawings by the ABS Surveyor permits the physical survey of the module at the fabrication facility to be commenced.
Once a host vessel for the module is determined, design review for installation approval can be commenced. Upon receipt of the documentation detailing the module and the proposed location onboard the host vessel, the ABS technical office can review the arrangements. Once the ABS engineers have determined that the proposed location onboard the host vessel is suitable for the subject module, stamped drawings will be returned to the submitter and made available to the attending ABS Survey office. Upon receipt of these drawings, the attending ABS Surveyor may attend the vessel and confirm that the installation of the modules is in accordance with the approved arrangements.
The manufacturer is to assign a unique serial number to identify all modules being reviewed to this Guide. The initial submission of drawings is to specifically indicate the serial number of modules to be built in accordance with the drawings.
