... stand (i.e. 27 m or so). Typically one gets, at the most, one reading of the trip tank level per stand, the average and maximum hook load over a stand, the trip time for the stand plus a count of the stands. With the real-time acquisition and processing of hook-load, travelling block altitude and trip...

...-shaped bend. Commonly called the poor boy, the open-bottom mud/gas separator is typically mounted on a mud tank or trip tank with the bottom of the separator body submerged in the mud, as shown in Fig. 2. The fluid level (mud leg) in the separator is controlled by adjusting the fluid level in the mud...

... indicators. While tripping in or out, continued return flow and trip-tank gain (vs. expected change) are the primary indicators. Given the challenge of finding a way to automate the initial well-control response to a kick, it soon became apparent that setting a goal to provide the driller with a reliable...

A graphical representation of the difference between the two is given to the Driller, Rig Superintendent and operator representative, together with alarms when a consistent deviation is identified. TOTAL's concern for safety, especially on difficult wells, has led...

Several kick drills were performed with good results showing how the drill crew was able to detect influxes even earlier with the new CML parameters. The use in the second well was extended...

... backpressure was reduced for short periods to perform dynamic flow checks. Dynamic flow checks were performed every 45 feet measured depth to map the pore pressure. One of the dynamic flow checks identified one pressure step increase (greater than 1.0 ppg) and a 0.5 bbls gain on the trip tank at the same time...
