Optimisation and automation is becoming an integral part of drilling workflow in which, drilling fluid rheology is an important component. The objective of this thesis was to study the fluid rheology in more depth using different measurement methods. A series of experiments were conducted to ascertain the synergic interaction of low-end viscosifiers to enhance drilling fluid properties. Furthermore, rheological experiments were performed to investigate the effect of fine particles on the rheology of mono-dispersed suspensions.
