Bottomhole Pressure Gauge
Definition - What does Bottomhole Pressure Gauge mean?
Bottomhole Pressure Gauge is a specified tool that is designed to measure the precision and accuracy of a well. It consists of associated electronics, telemetry, and pressure transducer. Different components measure the performance of the device. For instance, accuracy is measured by a pressure transducer whereas a sensor detects the change in the resolution with pressure. Every component predicts the quality while calculating the downhole pressure of the well. Moreover, transient response can also be monitored with the help of the gauge.
Petropedia explains Bottomhole Pressure Gauge
The Bottomhole Pressure Gauge measures pressure in PSI (pounds per square inch). Equation depends on the amount of fluid filled in the wellbore and the weight of the mud. The pressure increases with the increase in the amount of fluid friction. However, the related gradient must increase in accordance to the formation of pressure gradient so as to avoid the influx of liquid to enter into the wellbore. It is important to measure the pressure with the gauge so as to obtain accurate results while drawing geothermal maps and carrying out temperature sensitive operations.
