Crews should be alerted that, in the potential pay interval, no more than some minimal interval (usually 2 to 5 feet) of any drilling break should be penetrated. This is one of the most important aspects of pressure control. Many multimillion-dollar blowouts could have been avoided by limiting the open interval. INCREASE IN PIT LEVEL OR FLOW RATE A variation of bit type may mask a drilling break. In that event, the first warning may be an increase in flow rate or pit level caused by the influx of formation fluids.
Some insist on using this technique today although it is no more successful now than then. If the influx was mostly liquid, this technique was successful. If the influx was mostly gas, the results were disastrous. ” Invariably, something did break, as illustrated in the drilling report at the beginning of this chapter. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, some began to realize that this Barrel In–Barrel Out technique could not be successful. If the influx was gas, the gas had to be permitted to expand as it came to the surface.
