Couverture de l’ouvrage Practical Wellbore Hydraulics and Hole Cleaning

Hydraulic design is a critical and big part of any drilling operation, but drilling engineering and managers must search through multiple applications to gather all the solutions. Practical Wellbore Hydraulics and Hole Cleaning delivers one resource with the needed explanations, equations, and descriptions important for wellbore hydraulics including hole cleaning. Involving many moving factors, and complex issues, this product provides a systematic and practical summary of the solutions, helping engineers understand and answer through calculations, case studies, and guidelines not found anywhere else. Topics such as impact of temperature and pressure of fluid properties are covered as well as vertical and deviated-from-vertical hole cleaning differences. The importance of bit hydraulics optimization, drilling fluid challenges, pressure drop calculations, downhole properties, and pumps rounds out the information contents. Packed with example calculations and handy appendices, Practical Wellbore Hydraulics and Hole Cleaning gives the drilling engineer the tool necessary for effective bit hydraulics and hole cleaning operation design.



  • Provides practical techniques to ensure hole cleaning in both vertical and deviated wells
  • Addresses errors in predictive wellbore hydraulics modelling equations and provides remedies
  • Learn ways to improve economic efficiencies of drilling oil and gas wells with calculations, guidelines, and case studies
1. Hole Cleaning
