Speaker Tom Bailey, Business Head-EPYGEN USA

“Understanding Mud properties in various forms and adjusting for various formations and comparing the onshore versus offshore differences globally”.

Mr. Tom Bailey is a career internationalist working as the senior business development/marketing/sales person for public and private companies within the Oil and Gas, Biotech, Capital Equipment and Electronic Component Industries.  He is currently developing distribution channels within The America’s for a biotech company headquartered in Dubai.

Mr. Bailey will speak on the topic of drilling mud.  Drilling mud (also called drilling fluid) in petroleum engineering is a heavy, viscous fluid mixture that is used in oil and gas drilling operations to carry rock cuttings to the surface and also to lubricate and cool the drill bit.  Mud properties go a long way to making the rig operate efficiently and to its maximum capabilities.  Incorrect mud properties can cause issues throughout the rig, including premature wear of consumables, damage to critical rig floor equipment, and inefficient drilling results.

NOMADS works with other major oil and gas associations and petroleum societies in the Houston area to disseminate knowledge about the international oilfield, to help those seeking jobs in the Energy Industry, and to foster friendships for energy professionals found across a range of disciplines in the international Oil and Gas Industries.
NOMADS holds monthly petroleum society meetings at the Houston Engineering and Scientific Society (H.E.S.S.) Club in Houston, Texas. Our members help each other find jobs in the energy industry, opportunities in the international energy industry, and share ideas on the current status of the global oil and gas markets.
If you are an oil and gas professional in the energy industry who is seeking membership in a petroleum society, please contact us or stop by our next oil and gas association meeting in Houston.
We hope to have a representative from your company or project at our next NOMADS event.
