Basic Drilling Calculation For Mud Engineer is very important for mud ingineer

which include

Pressure Gradient

Hydrostatic pressure

Specific Gravity Of Mud

**Hydrostatic Pressure**is created by fluid column and two factor effecting of the hydrostatic pressure

True Vericle Depth of hole and Mud Weight

**Hydrostatic Pressure**increase with increasing Mud Weight and True Verticle Depth

HP=.052 * Mud Weight *Trur Verticle Depth

Example: mud weight = 10.5 ppg

True Vertical Depth = 12,000 ft

HP = 10.5 ppg x 0.052 x 12,000 ft

HP = 6552 psi

**Specific Gravity Of Mud**

Is the ratio of the density of a substance to the density of a reference substance

Mud weight increase by increasing sp.gr which increase the hydrostatic pressure

**Pressure Gradient**

Pressure gradient = mud weight x 0.052

Example

Mud weigt = 10.5 ppg

Pressure gradient in psi/ft = 10.5 x 0.052

Pressure gradient in psi/ft = .545 psi/ft

This software can help mud engineer for all operation of mud Calculation
