FORMULAS
1. Pressure Gradient (psi/ft) = Mud Weight (ppg) x 0.052
2. Hydrostatic Pressure (psi) = Mud Weight (ppg) x 0.052 x Depth (ft, TVD)
3. Capacity (bbls/ft) = Inside Diameter2 (in.) 1029.4
4. Annular Capacity(bbls/ft) = (Inside Diameter of Casing2 (in.) or Hole Diameter2 (in.) - Outside Diameter of Pipe2 (in.)) 1029.4
5. Pipe Displacement (bbls/ft) = (Outside Diameter of pipe2 (in.) - Inside Diameter of pipe2 (in.)) 1029.4
6. Maximum Allowable Mud Weight (ppg) =

Surface LOT Pressure (psi)


+ LOT Mud Weight (ppg)
Shoe Depth (ft, TVD) x 0.052

7. MAASP (psi) = [Maximum Allowable Mud Weight (ppg) - Present Mud Weight (ppg)] x 0.052 x Shoe TVD (ft)
8. Formation Pressure (psi) = Hydrostatic Pressure Mud in Hole (psi) + SIDPP (psi)
9. Sacks (100 lb) of Barite Needed to Weight-Up Mud =

Bbls of Mud in System x 14.9 x (KMW - OMW)


(35.4 - KMW)

NOTE: This formula assumes that the average density of Barite is 35.4 ppg and the average number of sacks (100lb) per barrel is 14.9.

10. Volume Increase from Adding Barite (bbls) = Number of Sacks (100 lb) added 14.9
11. Equivalent Mud Weight (ppg) @ __________ depth (ft) =
12. Estimated New Pump Pressure at New Pump Rate (psi)

[ DepthPressure x 0.052 ]+ Current Mud Weight

New Pump Rate (SPM)
= Old Pump Pressure
