Well Control Incident in the North Sea as Interpreted with Advanced Gas Influx Modelling

Category

Abstract
Abstract Objectives/Scope Handling well control incidents during drilling operations safely and efficiently is of crucial importance, due to the potential danger to crew, rig and environment, as well as the economic aspects. In this paper, we study an actual incident from a North Sea drilling operation, using recent advances in gas influx modelling, which allows for improved understanding of the underlying physical processes, hence enabling more accurate well control simulations
