The first mud sales and service company was formed in 1930 as Baroid Sales Company. Building the first mud products involved R&D efforts by the operators and the service companies. They quickly developed products to solve various problems, such as viscosity control and making a "wall building" fluid to control fluid loss. The mud balance replaced mud buckets and hydrometers for weight control. Harlan Marsh of General Petroleum designed a funnel viscometer for viscosity measurements. Oil Base Inc. was established to market oil muds.
