The composition and properties of fluids used in well operations (e.g., drilling fluids, completion fluids, etc.) are crucial to safe and efficient operations. As such, fluids used are analyzed, and composition and property measurements are recorded throughout operations—often continuously for certain fluids—and the additives or dilution compounds added are also monitored, measured, and recorded. The monitoring and data capture is done by the mud engineering service company at the wellsite, and then data is transferred to an operator’s systems, for record keeping and future analysis.

The fluid report (FluidReport) data object is designed to capture and transmit the measured properties of well fluids for a given operation.
