    Drillbench Blowout Control

    This course will introduce the principles and concepts related to blowout control operations and using advanced dynamic multi-phase flow simulator (SLB's Drillbench Well Control software). It will provide an overview of the tertiary well control options and the engineering calculations required to ensure that a well kill can be achieved. 

    This course also deals with the basics of relief well planning and it deals with dynamic well kill operations for blowout wells.

    • Introduction to blowouts and the dynamic aspects of a blowout
      • Brief review of:
        • Blowout Types
        • Current Blowout Control Methods
        • Fluid Mechanics Of A Blowout
        • Relief well planning
        • Shallow Gas
    • Introduction to the Blowout Control software - how to build a model 

    • Introduction to the Blowout Control software - how to run simulations
    • Kill requirements in case of a shallow gas flow during drilling of a pilot hole section
      • Build a shallow gas flow model and run the simulation

    • Gas flow rates from relevant scenarios and their respective kill requirements
      • Build a deepwater model with relief well
      • Flow rate simulation - Seabed & Surface release 

    • Relief well planning and intersection high level definition
    • Dynamic kill from a relief well
      • Evaluate the blowout scenario from horizontal well
      • Dynamic kill trough drillpipe
      • Kill through relief well

    • Summary of course
    • Drillbench Blowout Control - User tips and tricks
    • Open discussion

    This course is suitable for drilling engineers, well-site supervisors and/or service providers who design, plan and manage drilling operations.

    Tertiary Well Control - Lubricate and Bleed, Well Control History - Blowout case studies, Blowout Contingency, Worst Case discharge, Capping Wells, Relief Well planning and Dynamic Kill Operations Modelling.

    The skill level for this course requires a good understanding of the conventional drilling and well construction process. 

    Participants should have a minimum of five (5) year drilling related experience and must have an understanding of conventional well control and fluid hydraulics principles. Ideally, the candidates should have started (or finished) in the IWCF certification process (supervisor level preferred).

    Numerous computer simulations will be done during the course.
