Well Control

Pressure Control

Wild Well provides specialist assistance – available in-office and/or on location in the field – to resolve well control complexities to regain hydrostatic control of a given well. In complex wells, the margin between fracture gradient and pore pressure gradient is narrow, which makes formation breakdown always a possibility.

Wild Well possesses the necessary expertise and skills to help clients return to normal operations after encountering well control issues such as:

  • High-volume kicks
  • High-pressure kicks
  • Underground blowouts
  • Kicks with lost circulation
  • Kicks with no pipe in the hole
  • Kicks in oil-based drilling fluids
  • Kicks with drillstring off bottom
  • Pressure control in H2S environments
  • Pressure control in HPHT wells
