Well Control Acronyms

I would like to share some well control acronyms so you will be more understanding about content in well control.

ACF = Annular Capacity Factor

BHP = Bottom Hole Pressure

BOPE = Blow Out Preventer Equipment

BPUTS = Bring Pumps Up To Speed

CLF = Choke Line Friction

CMW / OMW = Current Mud Weight / Original Mud Weight

CP = Casing Pressure

KWM / KMW = Kill Weight Mud / Kill Mud Weight

LOT = Leak Off Test

MAASP = Maximum Allowable Annular Surface Pressure

MASP = Maximum Anticipated Surface Pressure

MD = Measured Depth

MGS = Mud Gas Separator

MI = Mud Increment

MISICP = Maximum Initial Shut-in Casing Pressure

OBM = Oil Based Mud
