# Cuttings produced per foot of hole drilled - lbs

## Input(s)

\(\mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{a}}\): Capacity of Hole \((\mathrm{bbl} / \mathrm{ft})\)

\(\mathrm{L}_{\mathrm{d}}\): Footage Drilled (ft)

SG: Specific Gravity of Cuttings (fraction)

Ø: Porosity (fraction)

## Output(s)

\(\mathrm{W}_{\mathrm{cg}}\): Amount of Cuttings Produced per each Foot of Hole Drilled (lb)

## Formula(s)

\[
\mathrm{W}_{\mathrm{cg}}=350 *\left(\mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{a}}\right) *\left(\mathrm{~L}_{\mathrm{d}}\right) *(1-\varnothing) * \mathrm{SG}
\]
