This book removes the mystery and pressure from calculations by equipping readers with the tools they need to understand calculations and how they work. This is done by using straight-forward language and showing fully worked out, rig-based examples throughout. The book comprises of mini lessons which are never more than two pages long and a complete lesson is always in view when the book is open in front of you. Lessons progress in a logical manner and once the book is finished, the reader is ready for any calculations that could be encountered at well control school.
It is a great tool for rig crew members who are afraid of calculations or have not done any math since school. I found it easy to follow with clear explanations and it flowed from topic to topic. A definite addition to the rig crews training toolbox.

The primary objectives of this book are three fold: 1. To develop a working knowledge of the mud motor 2. To develop procedures and guidelines so that mud motor can be used efficiently within the performance envelop and 3. To develop a clear understanding of the operating principle so that the drilling system can be optimized. Illustrative examples are provided as and when appropriate. Throughout the book we have maintained the engineering perspective related to well engineering aspects.
Look Inside Positive Displacement Motor: A comprehensive and valuable book written by a team of outstanding experts in this tool and published through SigmaQuadrant publishing. The Positive Displacement Motors covers the full spectrum of topics in terms of analysis and design of the downhole mud motor that serves the workhorse of the downhole drilling system for several decades. This book presents functional, operational and technical aspects of positive displacement motor. It provides a platform ideal to seasoned engineer, experienced researcher and other professionals involved in the drilling operations as it offers real insight into this simple but complex machine. It highlights the background and development of this tool
- Provides details of the design
- Offers operational guidelines of this tool
- Emphasizes technology selection and innovation in the offing
- Incorporates practical operating envelop
Different types of downhole motors are used and common types are:
- Percussion Hammers
- Positive Displacement Motors (PDM)
- Electric Downhole Motors (EDM)
The present book is devoted to the study of the deep Earth’s interior structure, one of the most important problems of Earth sciences today. The drilling of the Kola superdeep well inaugurated a new stage in the study of the Precambrian continental crust. The well was sunk in the northeastern part of the Baltic Shield, in an area where the Precambrian ore-bearing structures, typical of the ancient platform basements, are in juxtaposition with each other. To the present the well has been drilled to a depth of 12 km, has traversed the full thickness of the Proterozoic complex and a considerable part of the Archean stratum, and is still be ing worked on. This book reviews the principal results of investigations to a depth of 11,600 m; these are described in three sections: geology, geophysics, and drilling. The book begins with a general review of the history, the present state of knowledge, and trends of further investigations in the field of study of the Earth’s interior and superdeep drilling. The first section of the book considers the geology of the vicinity of the Kola superdeep well and describes its geological section based on a detailed examination both of the cores and the near-borehole area.
