Formulas and Calculations for Drilling, Production, and Workover: All the Formulas You Need to Solve Drilling and Production Problems, Third Edition, provides a convenient source of reference for oil field workers who do not use formulas and calculations on a regular basis. This book is still intended for the entirety of their careers. It also aims to help reduce the volume of materials they must carry to the rig floor or job site. Starting with review of basic equations and basic calculations, the remaining chapters offer in-depth discussions of topics such as drilling fluids, pressure control, engineering calculations, and air and gas calculations. The formulas and calculations are provided in either English field units or in metric units. This edition includes the Volumetric Procedure, the Lubricate and Bleed Procedure (both Volume and Pressure Methods), and stripping procedures (both the Strip and Bleed Procedure and the Combined Stripping and Volumetric Procedure). The Table of Contents and the Index make looking up formulas and calculations quick and easy. Examples are used throughout to make the formulas as easy as possible to understand and work, and often exact words are used rather than symbols.

Quotes and reviews

"The third edition of this pocket guidebook (6x5.5?) for oil field workers is fully updated and revised to include references to the latest technologies and techniques. The work provides personnel in the field with practical step-by-step instructions for performing critical calculations for important drilling and production tasks. The volume includes equations for problems such as mud weight, hydrostatic pressure, pressure gradients, annular velocity, control drilling, and circulating hydraulic horsepower. Many entries include alternative calculation methods and example problems. The authors are academics and field experts in drilling techniques."--Reference and Research Book News
