The principal position that Reservoir engineers play in a field's improvement and making plans can't be over priced. Recommending, the main applicable and such a lot within your means reservoir depletion schemes has an excellent impression on a field's and eventually a company's profitability. If performed appropriately, it's going to bring about a providence for the corporate but when performed incorrectly or haphazardly, it is going to lead to bankruptcy.

The obvious answer is that the well should be observed as long as necessary to satisfy the observer of the condition of the well. Generally, 15 minutes or less are required. If oil muds are being used, the observation period should be increased. If the well is deep, the observation period should be longer than for a shallow well. If the drilling break is a potentially productive interval but no flow is observed, it may be prudent to circulate bottoms up before continuing drilling in order to monitor and record carefblly parameters such as time, strokes, flow rate and pump pressure for indications of potential well control problems.

One defense in these cases is to attempt to fill the hole with water in order that the well may be observed. Usually, if an underground flow is occurring, pressure and hydrocarbons will migrate to the surface within a few hours. In many areas it is forbidden to trip out of the hole without returns to the surface. In any instance, tripping out of the hole without mud at the surface should be done with extreme caution and care, giving considerationto pumping down the annulus while tripping. MUD CUT Gas-cut mud has always been considered a warning signal, but not necessarily a serious problem.

In addition, blowout preventers, like valves, are made to be open or closed while chokes are made to restrict flow. In some instances, during hard shut-in, the fluid velocity through closing blowout preventers has been sufficient to cut out the preventer before it could be closed effectively. In the young rocks such as are commonly found in offshore operations, the consequences of exceeding the maximum pressure can be grave in that the blowout can fracture to the surface outside the casing. The blowout then becomes uncontrolled and uncontrollable.
