Common Well Control Hazards by Sun Xiaozhen

By Sun Xiaozhen

Seriously illustrated with 900 photographs of tangible good regulate websites, Common good regulate risks: id and Countermeasures provides a visible illustration of 177 universal good keep an eye on risks and the way to avoid or counteract them. the precise significant other for any engineer who must strengthen and observe their ability extra successfully, this “plain language” advisor covers universal good keep watch over gear similar to: BOP regulate process, BOP manifold, kill manifold, drilling fluid restoration pipes, IBOP instruments, liquid fuel separator, and fireplace, explosion & H2S prevention. With this guide in hand, “new hires” not just find out about the inherent dangers which anticipate them out within the box but in addition achieve specialist recommendation for deploying the required countermeasures so one can bring about powerful, incident loose box operations.

  • Simply describes operational gear and procedures
  • Explains 177 different types of capability dangers and countermeasure
  • Identifies universal dangers and their countermeasures

Exhumation of the North Atlantic Margin: Timing, Mechanisms and Implications for Petroleum Exploration (Geological Society Special Publication, No. 196)

Specified booklet 196. Exhumation of the North Atlantic Margin: Timing, Mechanisms and Implications for Petroleum Exploration. Northwest Europe has gone through repeated episode of exhumation (the publicity of previously buried rocks) as a result of such components as post-orogenic unroofing, rift-shoulder uplift, hotspot task, compressive tectonics, eustatic seal-level switch, glaciation and isostatic re-adjustment.

Offshore Safety Management. Implementing a SEMS Program

2010 used to be a defining yr for the offshore oil and gasoline within the usa. On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) floating drilling rig suffered a catastrophic explosion and hearth. 11 males died within the explosion ― 17 others have been injured. the hearth, which burned for an afternoon and a part, finally despatched the whole rig to the ground of the ocean.

Designing for Human Reliability: Human Factors Engineering in the Oil, Gas, and Process Industries

Underestimates the level to which behaviour at paintings is motivated through the layout of the operating surroundings. Designing for Human Reliability argues that larger understanding of the contribution of layout to human errors can considerably increase HSE functionality and enhance go back on funding. Illustrated with many examples, Designing for Human Reliability explores why paintings platforms are designed and carried out such that "design-induced human blunders" turns into more-or-less inevitable.

Example text

When drilling in the rainy season, or in a rainy region, if hydraulic hose is placed on the ground directly, it will be buried and eroded by muddy water, which will shorten the service life of the pipe. It is also difficult to inspect and maintain (Figs. 2-1-10, 2-1-12). FIG. 2-1-9 Hydraulic pipe is buried. FIG. 2-1-10 Hydraulic pipe is on the ground. CHAPTER 2 Common Hidden Dangers and Remedies FIG. 2-1-11 Pipe is buried and compressed by vehicles. 49 FIG. 2-1-12 Muddy well site after rain. Remedy Hydraulic hose should be not be on the ground, especially when drilling in the rainy season or in a rainy region; it should be on the rack 10 cm above the surface, as shown in Figure 2-1-13.

2-2-7 Position of the reversing valve of the blind-ram is restricted with wire tying. the blind-ram is restricted with a baffle (B). Remedy The blind-ram BOP should be equipped with the safety cover that does not hold back remote control. During drilling operation, only the driller knows whether there is drill string in the borehole. Either close the pipe-ram BOP or the blind-ram BOP. The purpose of installing the safety cover in the reversing valve of the blind-ram BOP is to prevent any mistaken operation by the assistant driller in the remote console, instead of the driller’s operation by mistake (Figs.

If the height of the derrick substructure can meet the BOP installation, it is inadvisable that the assembly of blind-ram BOP and shear-ram BOP is replaced by a pair of blind-shear-ram BOPs. In a western well, after the drill pipe was cut off, the wellhead could not be shut-in. It was risky to change the pipe-ram BOP into a blind-ram BOP, so the wellhead could be controlled, as in Figure 2-2-14. Be aware that when the blind-ram BOP was tested in the factory, it could cut off a drill pipe, and shut-in a wellhead.
