        Yes, I found the same – on question 18 of 25

        18. Question = The well is planned to TD at 9,500′MD/9,000′TVD. Expected formation pressure at TD is 4,500 psi. Plan to have over balance 300 psi over formation pressure. How much mud weight in ppg should be?
        9.7 ppg
        10.3 ppg (answer selected)
        11.0 ppg

        System responded – Incorrect
        Desired hydrostatic pressure at the bottom = 4500 +300 = 4800 psi
        Equivalent Mud Weight = 4,800÷0.052÷9,000 = 10.3 ppg
        Ref: Convert Pressure into Equivalent Mud Weight

    kindly review question number 18 & 21. The Answers are not right.

  4. Rick Nelson says:

    Number 18 is incorrect. The explanation and the answer shown there is correct, however the answer shown in the selections is incorrect.

  5. George Heckler says:

    Comment on question 25. Although the question and the answer are correct as stated in the quiz, in reality the mud is usually only gas cut at the flow line and will not be gas cut once it reaches its solution gas pressure or bubble point of the system. This is a complex physical calculation not usually available to field personnel and involves the knowledge of the solubility of hydrocarbon gases in water/oil drilling fluids. This condition is more dramatic in oil base fluids and can and does lead to the double kick (inital and bubble point) condition observed with these fluids. Craveat: If in doubt do a flow check, etc.

      Thanks for your comment. In this question, we would like people to simply understand of the gas cut mud in a very basic concept. Therefore, people can apply well control concept on this question.
