Buoyancy Factor Table Free Download

Buoyancy factor is the factor that is used to compensate loss of weight due to immersion in drilling fluid and you can find the calculation from here https://www.drillingformulas.com/buoyancy-factor-calculation/.


We have created a simple table to help people determine the buoyancy factor quickly. Let’s take a look at the table. In Figure 1, it shows the main page and you can select the mud weight range from 4.0 ppg to 19.0 ppg.

 Figure 1- Main Page BF Table

Figure 1– Main Page BF Table

For instant, we choose 8.0 ppg and the table will show buoyancy from 8.0 – 8.9 ppg (Figure 2)

Figure 2 - Buoyancy Factor for 8 ppg Range

Figure 2 – Buoyancy Factor for 8 ppg Range

 The table shows the buoyancy factor from mud weight range from 8.0 – 8.9 ppg. Additionally, the table demonstrates mud weight in kg/l. For example, if we select 8.5 ppg, the table will tell you the buoyancy factor of 0.8702 (Figure 3).
