(e.g. liquid flow rate, gas injection rate) injection Volume Requirements Volume Using the minimum volumetric flow rates, Using estimate the bottom-hole pressure, surface injection pressures, and compressor power compressor Predict the pressure underbalance at the Predict pay zone f the objective of using UBD is to minimize formation damage minimize Peform borehole stability analysis Volume Requirements Volume Select a contractor whose compressors Select will provide the drilling operation with the appropriate pressures and flow rates appropriate Estimate the approximate volume of fuel Estimate required by the compressors to drill the well. well.
