Question #260303

Calculate the pressure gradient in psi/ft from mud weight of 10.0ppg b. Calculate the pressure gradient in psi/ft from mud weight of 80Ib/ft^3.

Expert's answer

psi/ft = mud weight, ppg x 0.052

10.0 ppg fluid psi/ft = 10.0 ppg x 0.052 psi/ft = 0.52.

Pressure gradient, psi/ft, using mud weight, lb/ft 3. psi/ft = mud weight, lb/ft^3 x 0.006944

80 lb/ft^{3 }fluid psi/ft = 80 lb/ft^{3 }x 0.006944

psi/ft = 0.5555
