The addition of a continuous mud weight recorder to the standard gas logging instruments was first recommended three years ago by Society Nationale des Petroles d’Aquitaine for better control of deep gas well drilling. To this end, a new apparatus, the DENSIMUD was developed and tested by GEOSERVICES, and has now acquired good reliability and wide use.
