Drilling engineers require estimates of the fluid pressures that they are likely to encounter in any given well to anticipate mud weights required to maintain optimal drilling rates and safety. In addition, the locations of anomalous pore-pressure regions are of interest in exploration because they often correlate with highly productive “sweet” spots in otherwise tight gas sands.

<a href="Pore%20pressure%20prediction%20using%20seismic">Pore pressure prediction using seismic</a>

Drilling engineers require estimates of the fluid pressures that they are likely to encounter in any given well to anticipate mud weights required to maintain optimal drilling rates and safety. In addition, the locations of anomalous pore-pressure regions are of interest in exploration because they often correlate with highly productive “sweet” spots in otherwise tight gas sands. <a href="http://petrowiki.org/Pore_pressure_prediction_using_seismic" alt="http://petrowiki.org/Pore_pressure_prediction_using_seismic" title="http://petrowiki.org/Pore_pressure_prediction_using_seismic">Learn more....</a>

New topic pages

New pages are continually added to PetroWiki. These new pages always need subject experts to help develop these pages into high quality resources. With so many different roles within PetroWiki that have to do with contributing there is undoubtedly a place that will fit perfectly with your expertise and time. <a href="http://petrowiki.org/Contribute_what_you_know_is_right" alt="http://petrowiki.org/Contribute_what_you_know_is_right" title="http://petrowiki.org/Contribute_what_you_know_is_right">Read more about becoming a champion for PetroWiki…</a>

Featured New Page
<a href="Facility%20operability">Facility operability</a>


Facility operability is the ability of an organization to operate a facility in a safe and efficient manner. The ultimate goal of facility operability is to design and construct a facility that will remain safe, efficient and cost effective throughout its lifetime use.

What is PetroWiki?

PetroWiki was created from the seven volume <a href="http://store.spe.org/Petroleum-Engineering-Handbook-Volumes-I-VII-Print-Set-P126.aspx" alt="http://store.spe.org/Petroleum-Engineering-Handbook-Volumes-I-VII-Print-Set-P126.aspx" title="http://store.spe.org/Petroleum-Engineering-Handbook-Volumes-I-VII-Print-Set-P126.aspx">Petroleum Engineering Handbook</a> (PEH) published by the <a href="http://www.spe.org" alt="http://www.spe.org" title="http://www.spe.org">Society of Petroleum Engineers</a> (SPE). PetroWiki preserves the PEH content in unaltered form (page names that start with PEH:), while allowing SPE's membership to update and expand content from the published version. Pages that do not have PEH: at the beginning may have started with content from the PEH, but have been modified over time by contributors to the wiki.

Content in PetroWiki is <a href="PetroWiki%3AModeration">moderated</a> by at least two members with subject matter expertise. This helps to ensure that the information found in PetroWiki is technically accurate. <a href="PetroWiki%3ADisclaimer">Disclaimer</a>
