If the actual situation is not approximated by the theoretical models used in the development of the classical procedures, the classical procedures are not appropriate. There is an obvious general lack of understanding. It is the purpose of t h s chapter to establish firmly the theoretical basis for the classical procedures as well as describe the classical procedures. The application of the theory must be strictly followed in the displacement procedure. CAUSES OF WELL KICKS AND BLOWOUTS A kick or blowout may result from one of the following: 1.

In areas where formation productivity is historically low (roughly less than 1 million standard cubic feet per day without stimulation), operators often drill with mud hydrostatics below the pore pressures. 30 Advanced Blowout and Well Control Mud weight requirements are not always known for certain areas. The ability of the industry to predict formation pressures has improved in recent years and is sophisticated. However, a North Sea wildcat was recently 9 pounds per gallon overbalanced while several development wells in Central America were routinely 2 pounds per gallon underbalanced.

Two-inch lines are too small for any operation and should not be used. Consistently, a major problem is the header. In most manifold assemblies, the entire system becomes inoperable when the header fails. 14 which illustrate a header design common to many operations. This system failed for two reasons. The lines between the choke manifold and the header were 2 inches outside diameter which resulted in excessive velocities and the back side of the header was eroded away by the jetting action of the flow stream as it entered the header and expanded.
