Diagram of blowout preventer
A Abandoned A dry hole in which no producible oil or gas was present, or a well that has stopped producing. Abandoned wells must be plugged to prevent seepage of oil, gas, or water from one formation
to another. Active well A well in mechanical condition for production or service use (i.e., in active production or service use). Anticline An upfold or arch of stratified rock in which the beds A blowout is the uncontrolled release of crude oil and/or natural gas from an oil well or gas well after pressure control systems have failed. Modern wells have blowout preventers intended to prevent such an occurrence. An accidental spark during a blowout can lead to
a catastrophic oil or gas fire. Prior to the advent of pressure control equipment in the 1920s, the uncontrolled release of Macondo Well Deepwater Horizon Blowout. LESSONS FOR IMPROVING OFFSHORE DRILLING SAFETY. Committee on the Analysis of Causes of the Deepwater Horizon Explosion, Fire, and Oil Spill to Identify
Measures to Prevent Similar Accidents in the Future Offshore oil spill prevention and response is the study and practice of reducing the number of offshore incidents that release oil or hazardous substances into the environment and limiting the amount released during those incidents. Important aspects of prevention include technological assessment of equipment and procedures, and protocols for
training, inspection, and contingency plans for Proper risk management would have unquestionably reduced, if not eliminated, the probability of a blowout. In fact, the very first conclusion stated in the National Commission's report (2011, pvii) was, “The explosive loss of the Macondo well could have been prevented.” DRILLING IN VIETNAM Volume 2 - Drilling Operations Procedure Manual Section 2 VIETNAM APPROVED PROCEDURES 1.

SHALLOW GAS PROCEDURES. Nov 05, 2009 · IWCF Well Control Practice Test. Welcome to the Enform IWCF practice test. You will need a formula sheet and a calculator to complete this test (go to www.iwcf.org click on syllabuses and print a copy of the S.I. Formula sheet). The I.D. and O.D. of an O-ring gland is primarily influenced by the diameter of the mating surface. Although the cross-section of the O-ring is seen as fairly arbitrary, there are some distinct advantages to either a larger or smaller cross-section O-ring.
