Title: DYNAMICALLY POSITIONED LIQUID MUD PLANT VESSEL
Abstract:
The present disclosure generally relates to an apparatus for storing, treating, and making up of various drilling fluids onboard a dynamically positioned vessel, such as a barge, boat, or shop. In particular, the present disclosure relates to a liquid mud plant (LMP) supporting any offshore drilling rig or platform from a vessel in closer proximity to that rig. Additionally, the present disclosure relates to the process by which the liquid mud plant is in closer proximity to the drilling, which is derived from the dynamical positioning capability of the liquid mud plant vessel.
