a) BARRELS of cuttings drilled per foot of hole drilled:
Example: Determine the number of barrels of cuttings drilled for one foot of 12-l/4in.-hole drilled with 20% (0.20) porosity:
Barrels = 0.1457766 x 0.80 Barrels = 0.1166213
b) CUBIC FEET of cuttings drilled per foot of hole drilled:
Example: Determine the cubic feet of cuttings drilled for one foot of 12-1/4 in. hole with 20% (0.20) porosity:
Cubic feet = 150 0626 x 0.7854 x 0.80 144
Cubic feet = 0.6547727
c) Total solids generated:
where Wcg = solids generated, pounds Ch = capacity of hole, bbl/ft L = footage drilled, ft SG = specific gravity of cuttings P = porosity, %
Example: Determine the total pounds of solids generated in drilling 100ft of a 12-1/4in. hole (0.1458bbl/ft). Specific gravity of cuttings = 2.40gm/cc. Porosity = 20%.
W = 9797.26 pounds

Co-op Mailing means that two or more businesses share in the cost and distribution of a direct mail campaign. It's kind of like having you and another non-competing business split the cost of printing, assembling and mailing an advertising flyer to a shared same market base.
