# Stripping/snubbing calculations - Maximum Allowable surface pressure governed by casing burst pressure

## Input(s)

$W_{o}$: Mud Weight behind casing (ppg)

$W_{u}$: Mud Weight in use (ppg)

$\mathrm{H}$: Casing Shoe TVD $(\mathrm{ft})$

$P_{b c}$: Casing Burst Pressure (psi)

S: Safety Factor (e.g., 80% represent 0.8 ) (dimensionless)

## Output(s)

MASP: Maximum Allowable Surface Pressure governed by Casing Burst Pressure (psi)

## Formula(s)

$M A S P=\left(P_{b c} * S\right)-\left(W_{u}-W_{o}\right) * 0.052 * H$## Reference(s)
