EQUATIONS HELP CALCULATE SURGE AND SWAB PRESSURES IN INCLINED WELLS

This article analyzes the surge and swab pressures caused by clinging power during tripping in inclined wells. The calculation method presented here is for steady-state surge and swab pressures for axial flow of a Herschel-Bulkley fluid in an eccentric annulus. The accompanying charts show the application of this method to oil field operations.
