When preparing a mud logging unit for the field it is important to make sure it is fully stocked and in working condition. Here are a few tips to remember:
LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND
Make an inventory checklist for everything that must go in your mudlogging unit. Have whoever is stocking the unit initial by each item when it is placed on the unit. This is very important because if something is left behind an extra trip might have to be made to take something out to the location which could be hundreds of miles away from the shop. It is also a good idea to have the unit manager initial that the items were received out in the field.
Make a checklist of all of the equipment that is leaving out to make sure it is in good working order. Have the technician initial by each piece of equipment that it was working properly when checked.
Make a checklist of everything on the trailer and make sure it is safe and legal to be on the road.
FOOD FOR RIG UP
Rig up day can be frustrating for some mudloggers. Sometimes they drive for hours to get to a muddy location. After arriving they sometimes must immediately rig up. This often leaves no time for grocery shopping. It is also better to go grocery shopping after rigging up because then the refrigerator is on and working at that time. Stocking the unit with canned food and snacks for rig up day often makes things run a lot smoother.
Following these simple tips can save time, money, and aggravation.
