Bottom hole pressure Definition


Bottom hole pressure:


The pressure at the bottom of a well.


The pressure, usually measured in bar at the bottom of the hole.

This pressure may be calculated in a static, fluid-filled wellbore with the equation:

bhp = p g h

where p (rho) is the fluid density in kg/m3, g is gravity in m/s2, and h is the vertical depth of the well in meters.
