Buoyancy Factor Calculation
Buoyancy Factor is the factor that is used to compensate loss of weight due to immersion in
drilling fluid.
Before explaining any further, I will explain you about the basic concept of Buoyancy. Buoyancy
is the upward force tha

The bottom hole pressure is sum of all the pressure acting on
the bottom hole. We can d

What is a trip tank?
Trip Tank is a small metal tank with small capacity about 20-40 bbls with 1 bbl divisions inside
and it is used to monitor the well. There are several operations that we can use the trip tank to

STUCK PIPE
Determine free point constant (FPC)
FPC = As x 2500
where: As = pipe wall cross sectional area, sq in.
As = (OD2-ID2) x 0.7854
This method requires outside diameter and inside diameter data.
Example#1: Determine free point constant (FPC) of 4 i
