Hydrostatic Pressure

The course is designed as per IWCF/IADC Well-control course curriculum.  

The Course has  11 Concept videos and a Quiz to check learning outcomes. 

The pressure exerted by a fluid at equilibrium at a given point within the fluid, due to the force of gravity. Hydrostatic pressure increases in proportion to depth measured from the surface because of the increasing weight of fluid exerting downward force from above.

The pressure due to the liquid alone (i.e. the gauge pressure) at a given depth depends only upon the density of the liquid, the acceleration of gravity and the distance below the surface of the liquid.

Hydrostatic pressure (psi) = Depth (TVD-feet) x Mud density (ppg) x 0.052
(0.052 is a conversion constant)
