International Well Control Forum (IWCF) has provided useful learning material, which is IWCF Drilling Calculation Part 1 – 3, to drilling people. We will review all of them and see the content inside. Additionally, these ebooks are available to download from IWCF website. Thanks for their contribution to drilling industry.
We’ve found this vidoe on Youtube and this is one of the most interesting stories of well control. This is about how to kill the blow out well using a nuclear bomb. We are not sure when it was happened but from what you can see, this was quite long time ago when directional technology was not good enough to successfully drill a relief well. Please see the video below and we already added the footage transcript for further learning.
Many people ask us every time about well control but many of them understand that well control is when the rigs are burn. This is not the right concept.
Well Control is a situation when hydrostatic pressure in a wellbore is less than formation pressure therefore reservoir fluid will come into a well. If a well control situation is not taking care of properly, it will result in blow like you can see in the VDO below.
The short VDO, only 1 minute and 34 seconds, clearly show that what will be happening if the well cannot be control.
