World War II severely slowed down R&D progress to just maintain oil and gas production for the war effort. Mud engineers were usually considered essential to the war effort and were exempt from serving in the military, Gasoline and rubber tire rationing were a problem for those field engineers. The world’s deepest well was drilled in 1944 to 15,279 ft by Phillips Petroleum in West Texas. A water based mud was supplied by Magnet Cove Barium Corporation (Magcobar).
