Well Control Formulas Part 4

I added some formulas that you must use in the event of well control situation.  Well control formulas part 4 consists of Height of Influx, rate of gas migration, Barite Requirement For Weight-up ,Volume Gain From Slug, Triplex Pump Output, Pump Output, Pump Pressure With New Pump Strokes, and Boyle’s Law

I will keep updating good well control formulas for you. I wish you would enjoy learning about well control formulas.

Height of Influx, ft


Approximate gas migration rate, ft/hr


Sacks of Barite Required For Weight-up, sx


Volume Gain From Slug, bbl


Triplex Pump Output (volume), bbl/stroke

Pump Output, bbl/min


New Pump Pressure With New Pump Strokes, psi


Boyle’s Law – Gas Pressure and Volume Relationship
