Summary Summary Boots & Coots Regains Control of Well After Blowout Occurs During Workover Operation
The Boots & Coots well control team was mobilized to the location to assess the situation and assist the operator on the response plan and operation. The team initially inspected and assessed the conditions of the barge and well. Gas was flowing into the lake bed and then to the water surface where it had caught fire.
Summary Summary Fifty Years Ago, LIFE Magazine Features Well Control Specialists’ Battle with Blowout Fire in Iran
The February 18, 1966, issue of LIFE Magazine printed an article about a large drilling well blowout in Iran titled “Assault on a Pillar of Fire.” The article, written by Lee Hall, described the blowout response by a team of Red Adair Company well control specialists. The team was led by one of the founders of the Boots & Coots company, Asger “Boots” Hansen.

Summary Summary Dynamic Kill Analysis
Relief well planning is an industry-wide necessity to help mitigate risks associated with drilling operations in high-pressure/hightemperature environments. Using reservoir information, fluid and gas properties and state-of-the-art multiphase flow simulation software, Boots & Coots can advise on how to successfully implement well killing operations.
Summary Summary Dispersion Modeling and Radiant Heat Analysis
Dispersion modeling and radiant heat analysis assists in the determination of exclusion zones around the well site. The modeling and analysis are critical parts of well control planning for both surface intervention and relief well planning and execution.
Summary Summary Kick Tolerance and Dynamic Well Control Modeling
Kick modeling and analysis provides value in safety and cost savings. This is especially true for deep water wells where the overburden is reduced and the margin between mud weight and fracture gradient is miniscule. Kick modeling also provides benefit in reductions of insurance premiums for wells both onshore and offshore.
Summary Summary Relief Well Directional Planning
Relief well planning is an interactive process where adjustments in other components of the relief well may trigger changes in the relief well directional plan.
