Enter the bottom hole resting pressure (psi) and the closure pressure (psi) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Net Pressure.

## Net Pressure Formula

NP = BHTP - Pc

Variables:

- NP is the Net Pressure (psi)
- BHTP is the bottom hole resting pressure (psi)
- Pc is the closure pressure (psi)

To calculate Net Pressure, subtract the closure pressure from the bottom hole resting pressure.

## How to Calculate Net Pressure?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Net Pressure.

- First, determine the bottom hole resting pressure (psi).
- Next, determine the closure pressure (psi).
- Next, gather the formula from above = NP = BHTP – Pc.
- Finally, calculate the Net Pressure.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

bottom hole resting pressure (psi) = 300

closure pressure (psi) = 250
