    Drilling software for mud engineer

    Drilling software for mud engineer


    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
