And our high level of consistent, reliable service has been the hallmark of what we deliver on every well.

Horizon Mud Company was founded in 1980 by Tony Farish. Tony continues to serve as president and CEO. His brother Ronnie Farish joined the company in 1981 and continues to serve as Vice President and COO.
At Horizon, we don’t just deliver your mud. We work alongside your drilling team every step of the way, day after day, for as long as it takes.
We don’t build service on the cheapest sack model system. But on value. We believe that every customer deserves focused attention, consistent service, strong leadership – and a dedicated team that truly cares about each and every project and every well.
And we deliver.
Standardized daily reports are consistently taken from the rig to keep your well in a loop of communication that supports and assists the mud engineer in the field. This loop can include the operator through emailed reports and/or daily communication with field and office personnel.
We’re always on.
We are proud to continue the Horizon family legacy of always doing the right thing.

The Horizon Difference
In today’s environment of cost-conscious exploration, it’s not the price of mud that keeps drilling costs low and minimizes drilling problems- it’s the quality and value of the mud service.
How focused is your mud engineer in your well?
The only way a mud engineer can be an asset to you is to be able to spend time on your well. There are many great mud engineers that can’t spend time on your well because they are simply working too many locations. The backbone of our commitment to you is to provide a service team that is not overloaded. Even on 24-hour sit jobs, it’s a 24-hour focus.
Where is your mud engineer during mud-up, logging, and TD?
We are on location during these critical times when larger amounts of mud are being mixed. These are times when on‐site supervision can make a significant difference in the mud expense and help to avoid costly problems and mistakes.
A hole will “talk” to you!
A thorough collection of data facilitates the wellbores ability to communicate volumes of information for analysis. All deviations, volume changes, connections, trips, penetration rates, lithology changes and accurate mud inventory data are collected daily. Our accurate and timely data helps to avoid problems before they occur and to determine the best possible solution when problems arise. Again, this requires time on location.
Quality mud service is more important than ever!
Our common goal is to achieve low drilling costs and minimize drilling problems. On average, the mud bill makes up 6% of the total well cost while it affects 60% of the FINAL well cost.
