In this research, the individual impact of cassava starch and hydroxyl propyl-modified starch on mud density of some formulated water-based drilling mud from local sourced clay have been investigated. The research aimed at investigating the independent impact of hydroxyl propyl-modifiedstarch and cassava starch on the mud density of formulated water-based drilling mud from local clay. This was achieved using the underpinned objectives: to separately formulate polymer water base drilling mud using hydroxyl propyl-modified-starch and cassava starch with local clay; and to examine the individual effect of the modified-starch and cassava starch on the mud density. The research adopted the comparison techniques as its methodology. The data collected from the techniques were subjected to analyses using Microsoft Excel 2012 tools. The results show that hydroxyl propyl-modified-starch and local starch can be used as weighting materials during the formulation of water-based drilling mud. Besides, hydroxyl propyl-modified-starch and local starch additives now also belong to the category of weighting materials additives. The study has demonstrated that starch generally can increase the weight of drilling mud, and soon cassava farmers will double efforts to cope with the demand of cassava starch for the production of modified-starch, to be used as weighting agent in drilling mud formulation.
