Newly revised, this is still the "must have" guide for any drilling, production, or petroleum engineer, with thousands of handy formulas and calculations that the engineer needs on a daily basis.

Presented in an easy–to–use format, this second edition of Formulas and Calculations for Drilling Operations is a quick reference for day–to–day work out on the rig. It also serves as a handy study guide for drilling and well control certification courses. Virtually all the mathematics required on a drilling rig is here in one convenient source, including formulas for pressure gradient, specific gravity, pump, output, annular velocity, buoyancy factor, and many other topics.

Whether open on your desk, on the hood of your truck at the well, or on an offshore platform, this is the only book available that covers the gamut of the formulas and calculations for petroleum engineers that have been compiled over decades. Some of these formulas and calculations have been used for decades, while others are meant to help guide the engineer through some of the more recent breakthroughs in the industry′s technology, such as hydraulic fracturing and enhanced oil recovery.

There is no other source for these useful formulas and calculations that is this thorough. An instant classic when the first edition was published, the much–improved revision is even better, offering new information not available in the first edition, making it as up–to–date as possible in book form. Truly a state–of–the–art masterpiece for the oil and gas industry, if there is only one book you buy to help you do your job, this is it!


Petroleum engineers, production engineers, chemical engineers, drilling engineers, engineers and non–engineers alike who work in the petroleum industry, students, faculty in petroleum and chemical engineering departments, and anyone with a strong interest in oil and gas engineering

This new revision of Formulas and Calculations for Drilling Operations:

Offers detailed calculations for the most common problems the engineer faces daily, including offshore calculations, horizontal drilling, and many other state–of–the–art technologies in drilling operations
Is the "have to have" handbook for any drilling engineer at any level
Comes compact, with only the most useful information, useful in the office or in the field
