The uncontrolled blowouts of oil, gas and geothermal waters are one of the major problems encountered in oil and gas exploration and production. The problem is even more complex if the flowing fluid contains aggressive components (hydrogen sulphide H2S, carbon dioxide CO2, mercaptane). It is almost the rule that fire follows the uncontrolled well blowouts, where the following problems are encountered:

  1. Efficient fire fighting on uncontrolled blowout wells

  2. Fire fighting with existing devices (without additional investment)

  3. Fire fighting meeting ecological requirements (pollution should be reduced to the minimum). This is article is describing the fire fighting and blowout control system on oil and gas wells called "DIP ".
