Okay experts, I've got a bonehead question. What does it mean when a well has 7000 lbs of pressure?

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.
DD, I am using the weight of methane gas adjusted to actual pressure. Gradient would be ~ 0.151 psi per foot of depth. So 7000 + 1510 = 8510
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,
It means something good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
That's funny Jimmy. I like that in an O&G man.
