Axial Tension in Drill String

Example A drill string consists of 10,000 ft of 19.5 #/ft drillpipe and 600 ft of 147 #/ft drill collars suspended off bottom in 15#/gal mud (Fb = bit weight = 0).

What is the axial tension in the

drillstring as a function of depth?

31

Example

Pressure at top of collars = 0.052 (15) 10,000

= 7,800 psi

Pressure at bottom of collars = 0.052 (15) 10,600

= 8,268 psi
