## Slug Volume Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Slug Volume.

**SLG = LS * C**

Variables:

- SLG is the Slug Volume (bbl)
- LS is the length of the slug pipe (ft)
- C is the drill pipe capacity (bbl/ft)

## How to Calculate Slug Volume?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Slug Volume.

- First, determine the length of the slug pipe (ft).
- Next, determine the drill pipe capacity (bbl/ft).
- Next, gather the formula from above = SLG = LS * C.
- Finally, calculate the Slug Volume.
- 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.

length of the slug pipe (ft) = 40

drill pipe capacity (bbl/ft) = 3.25

SLG = LS * C** **= ?
