Abstracts: blowout control technical reference

Please find below abstracts of the blowout control technical reference collection presented on "JWCO.com". 

Part 01-Strategy and Planning
Emergency management tools such as prior remedial contingency planning and a designated task force help those responsible for emergencies perform critical tasks confidently, effectively and efficiently.

Part 02-Logistics
Special services are often unfamiliar to operators and may not be available locally. Critical support and transportation are best managed by pre-planning to identify service, material and equipment needs. Vendors can be pre-qualified and contracts are signed in advance

Part 03-Insurance
For the assured to be prepared for the emergency and be adequately covered, correct policy wording on Control-of-well coverage under OEE or EED 8/86 forms needs to be worked out in advance

Part 04-Documented Contingency Plans
The first step to reduce vulnerability posed by a potential blowout is a documented emergency management and response system that will advise you of initiatives that must be addressed

Part 05-Hydraulics Modeling
Matching known downhole well information with surface flow characteristics of a blowout via computer allows selection of the most efficient kill method

Part 06-Underground Blowouts
Underground blowouts between subsurface intervals are common and can result in a significant escalation threat if not recognized quickly and controlled correctly

Part 07-Shallow Gas Blowouts
After underground blowouts, shallow gas blowouts are the second most common type of blowout and the most common type of surface blowout. Loss of rig, platform and life have resulted from shallow gas blowouts. Invariably, the well is lost

Part 08-HPHT Case History
Control of an offshore HPHT underground blowout. Lessons were learned as to limitations of dynamic kills and novel use of gunk squeezes with a 1 1/4-in. snubbing string to accomplish control

Part 09-Firefighting
The mechanics of oil/gas fires, meltdown and secondary damage, water/chemical/explosive extinguishing methods and considerations for voluntary ignition

Part 10-Surface Intervention Methods Descriptions of debris removal techniques; special services like junk shots, hot tapping and freezing; and proven methods of well capping

Part 11-Relief Wells
Advancements in technology and application engineering make the relief well a more practical blowout control option. Click here for pdf version.

Part 12-Well Control Incident Management
How developing these two disciplines allows an operator to more efficiently manage a blowout
