What is “Trip Gas”?

With static wellbore condition, any gas entering into mud while tripping is called “Trip Gas”. Gas will be seen while circulating bottom up after tripping back in hole again. Trip gas is caused by swabbing effect while tripping out of hole.

If you see a lot of trip gas after circulating out, this situation indicates that the wellbore is almost in a balance condition.
