Analysis of Pore Pressure - Predrill Tool in Operation Geology

Rakhi Arvind Pandey, (doi: 10.23953/cloud.ijaese.277)


Formation pressure plays an important parameter in the health of a borehole. In the oil field, pressure is commonly measured in pounds per square inch (psi). At the wellsite, we are typically concerned with the pressures throughout the circulating system. Study of Pore pressure or formation pressure makes a very important subject for the wellsite Geologists.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
