Well Control

Well Control

BPC executes complex well control operations on a stand-alone basis or in combination with snubbing or drilling operations. Not just well control during blow-out scenarios but also tailored solutions where the well cannot be killed or killing the well would result in reservoir damage or production loss. Expertise in rig-assisted, well control operations is available. Our services range from under- balance drilling and flow drilling to kick control and blow-out recovery.

We have solutions for:

  • Underground blow-out
  • Surface blow-out
  • Lost circulation and pressurized well conditions during drilling
  • Well kills
  • Leaking abandoned wells
  • Pressure below shallow plugs
  • Leaking casing
  • Sheared pipe after kick
  • String wash-outs¬†

Well control engineering

Well control incidents happen around the world and can be costly in terms of human lives, financial impact and environmental- and reputation damage. Prevention of these incidents is key. Strong well control engineering can significantly reduce risks by developing well engineered out well intervention plans and clear instructions to the operational personnel.
BPC together with our sister company Wild Well Control can assist in engineering out well intervention plans and provide support to the operational personnel.

Prepare for the unexpected

Contingency planning is the best way to prepare for unexpected well control scenarios. Engineering out contingencies and developing effective control measures helps to identify critical equipment and other recourses needed in case of an emergency. Proper contingency planning will help to reduce damage in case of a well control incident and will provide valuable input for emergency response plans.
BPC together with our sister company Wild Well Control can help to construct effective contingency- and emergency response plans. We can also help to set up equipment availability programs to make sure that the correct equipment is available when needed.
