Dear Ms. Numbers,

I am applying for the position of Mud Engineer with Newpark Drilling Fluids, LLC and my credentials coincide with the requirements in your job posting.

I have several years of experience working as a drilling technician, so I am very familiar with the different drilling techniques used to extract natural gas and oil from the ground. To help prepare for this position, I attended a technical school where I learned to analyze the different mud components and to create mud logs. I have the knowledge to determine which combination of mud you will need to use during the drilling process, based on methods used and on the different stages of drilling.

My experience and training includes conducting the standardized test throughout the process to determine what the mud’s viscosity should be. When needed, I have the skills to make the necessary changes by adjusting the chemical components of the mud or by changing the pH balance or temperature. My experience also includes calculating the costs associated with this particular part of the drilling process.

I also have the skills to recommend which drill bits will work the best during the extraction operation to help things go smoother and to help the drilling team stay on schedule. Safety is always a major concern on excavating operations and I have the training and experience to assist the technicians to help keep everyone safe. After viewing my resume, I am sure that you will agree that I am the best person for this job.

My contact number is (222)-442-7437.

Respectfully,

Clinton Mitchell
