18 year Drilling Fluids Engineer with consulting services for the last four years. Very proficient, safe, and economic use of numerous SBM, OBM, WBM, "Advanced Fluid Systems", Completion Fluids, and Packer Fluids of MiSWACO, Halliburton, and Baker Hughes serviced to many Operators. All well locations are treated as "high profile" with an aggressive approach of providing the most efficient and proactive treatments, but also a very high focus on Safety and the Environment while keeping minimal logistical issues possible with insightful communication.
My last two years' of assignments has been with MiSWACO working the Rheliant, WARP 4200, and Megadril P Systems. These locations have been in the Gulf of Mexico on Semi-Submersibles and SPAR Platforms in water depths over 5,000', in the Ohio Utica Play for a multi-well ERD Pad Site, and inside Saudi Arabia for a Deepwater Project in the Red Sea that utilized the Rheliant SBM. This single well had zero mud related issues. The Manifa Field assignments were Land and Offshore based. The mud system utilized was a “barite free, clay free” WBM System. Zero issues were encountered and no off bottom circulating was needed to keep the wellbore clean. Faster ROP track record than previous wells drilled. Previous wells needed to be "pumped out of hole", but these were able to be slugged and pulled "dry".
Created Miller Mud Management, LLC for consulting via SolaGROUP, LLC. Green Canyon Block of the Gulf of Mexico, the Manifa Project Land and Arabian Sea, Offshore in the Red Sea for Saudi Aramco, and Land work in the Utica Play of Ohio. Last contract was the Gulf of Mexico for Anadarko SPAR Deepwater projects. All projects were drilled without environmental or safety related incidents, corrected drilling related issues (well ballooning), and under projected programmed costs.
