# Drilling Formulas Application

Drilling Formulas application is developed by DrillingFormulas.com in order to help oilfield personnel to access oilfield formulas via mobile Android devices. In this application, there are a total of 119 helpful drilling formulas which cover several areas such as Applied Drilling, Basic Drilling Formulas, Directional Drilling, Drilling Fluid, Drilling Engineering, Hydraulics, Well Control and Drill String. This is excellent for people working on drilling, workover and completion, etc.

The app is very easy to use. Users can scroll down to the calculation and click, and then they will see the input cells. Once the input cells are input, click a “Calculate” to figure out the result or a “Clear” to delete input data.

The main page of the app is shown in the image below.
