Effective well control responses require a thorough diagnostic examination 

By identifying the flow path, possible failure points, and developing corrective measures, we can mitigate potential risks and ensure the successful containment of any issues that may arise.

Surface blowouts

In the event of a surface blowout, we will take the necessary steps to clear debris and direct the flow upward to gain a clear visual observation of the situation. Discover how the Boots & Coots team contains a well in an emergency without incurring any injuries in South America.

Range of tools and programs used

In underground blowouts, our team uses a range of tools and programs to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the well's condition, including:

  • Noise and temperature logs
  • Fluid movement logs like oxygen activation can be used to help determine the flow path
  • Sonic logs and borehole imaging tools are used to examine cement quality or casing condition
  • Pumping programs developed onsite to diagnose complex flow paths from pressure response behaviors
  • Daily diagnostic evaluations are performed to quickly identify and understand surface manifestations of changing well conditions
