PETE 491 Project No. 6 Performed: 10/25/05 Submitted: 11/3/05 Well-bore Volume and Bottoms Up Calculations The methods of describing the time that it takes to pump the fluids within a well bore can be approached in one of several methods. Calculating the time, strokes, and volume that it takes to cycle the mud through portions and the entire the well bore can be expressed in strokes to bit, bottoms up time, circulating volume, and several others. The factors of time, volume, flow rate, and strokes all represent a relationship with the physical dimensions of the well bore, including tubulars and pumping equipment. Starting with pumps, the output of mud pumps depends on the type (single or double acting duplex or triplex), manufacturer, and model with the corresponding horsepower.acting duplex or triplex), manufacturer, and model with the corresponding horsepower....
