Introduction To Well Control, Module 3: Hydrostatic Pressure
Hydrostatic Pressure: Hydrostatic pressure discusses the linear relationship between depth and pressure, how to calculate it, the importance of true vertical depth(TVD), and how the hydrostatic pressures in different sections of a well add to determine bottom hole pressure.
The premise of Introduction to Well Control computer based training course is that every member of the rig crew should understand the fundamental principles of well control in order to obtain the highest degree of safety during drilling operations. This self-paced interactive multimedia program takes a rig hand through the basic concepts of well control in an easy to understand, straight-forward manner. 3D animations, graphics and other visual imagery are used to quickly communicate complex subject material to manpower with diverse technical backgrounds and language skills.
