Well Control for Completions and Interventions explores the standards that ensure safe and efficient production flow, well integrity and well control for oil rigs, focusing on the post-Macondo environment where tighter regulations and new standards are in place worldwide. Too many training facilities currently focus only on the drilling side of the well’s cycle when teaching well control, hence the need for this informative guide on the topic. This long-awaited manual for engineers and managers involved in the well completion and intervention side of a well’s life covers the fundamentals of design, equipment and completion fluids. In addition, the book covers more important and distinguishing components, such as well barriers and integrity envelopes, well kill methods specific to well completion, and other forms of operations that involve completion, like pumping and stimulation (including hydraulic fracturing and shale), coiled tubing, wireline, and subsea intervention. Provides a training guide focused on well completion and intervention Includes coverage of subsea and fracturing operations Presents proper well kill procedures Allows readers to quickly get up-to-speed on today’s regulations post-Macondo for well integrity, barrier management and other critical operation components

Completions are the conduit between hydrocarbon reservoirs and surface facilities. They are a fundamental part of any hydrocarbon field development project. The have to be designed for safely maximising the hydrocarbon recovery from the well and may have to last for many years under ever changing conditions. Issues include: connection with the reservoir rock, avoiding sand production, selecting the correct interval, pumps and other forms of artificial lift, safety and integrity, equipment selection and installation and future well interventions. * Course book based on course well completion design by TRACS International * Unique in its field: Coverage of offshore, subsea, and landbased completions in all of the major hydrocarbon basins of the world. * Full colour

Universal Well Control gives today’s drilling and production engineers a modern guide to effectively and responsibly manage rig operations. In a post-Macondo industry, well control continues to require higher drilling costs, a waste of natural resources, and the possibility of a loss of human life when kicks and blowouts occur. The book delivers updated photos, practice examples and methods that are critical to modern well control information, ensuring engineers and personnel stay safe, environmentally responsible and effective. Complete with all phases of well control, the book covers kick detection, kick control, loss of control and blowout containment and killing. A quick tips section is included, along with templated. step-by-step methods to replicate for non-routine shut-in methods. Bonus equipment animations are included, along with a high number of visuals. Specialized methods are covered, including dual gradient drilling and managed pressure drilling. Provides a practical training guide that is focused on well control, including expanded subsea coverage Includes well kill procedures, with added kill sheets and bonus video equipment animations Helps readers understand templated steps for non-routine shut-in methods, such as the lubricate and bleed method and variable mud volume
