SIMPLIFIED EQUATIONS IMPROVE "LUBRICATION" FOR WELL CONTROL

Gary W. Nance, Randy Smith Well Control Schools Lafayette, La. Several assumptions and two easy-to-use equations can improve "lubrication," a well control procedure used to displace gas with drilling fluid or completion fluid. The equations are used to make a pressure schedule for monitoring the initial pressure, the pressure increase from pumping kill fluid, and the final pressure after bleeding for each lubrication cycle.
