where are you getting the pressure gradent for natural gas? The pressure from the fromula I used simply shows the weight of the mud from the perspective of true vertical depth, in this case 15 ppg and 15,000 feet . Also assuming a surface pressure of 0 Psi.
Its suprising how much presure would increase the gradient for the gas. In the drilling part of these wells we generally work with fluids, which for the most part dont compress, so pressure would not affect the gradient,
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
