"A goal without a plan is just a wish." Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

A blowout event requires an appropriate emergency response.

This emergency response should be prepared in advance by considering and analyzing the worst-case discharge of the given well and by preparing and defining the optimum surface intervention and relief well response plan to such an event.

Such a document associated to a drilling well is called a BOCP for the Blow-Out Contingency Plan.

Blow-Out Contingency Plan

We provide detailed engineering for relief well design and we collaborate with well control experts and third-party company to provide dynamic killing simulations and surface intervention feasibility study.

Dynamic Killing Simulation

Simulate fluid dynamic killing of the blowout well & worst-case discharge; the main objective is to ensure feasibility of killing the well based on different depth interception scenarios and relief well trajectory, and to establish mud volume and kill pressure.

Relief Well Design

BOCP includes Relief Well Contingency Planning:

  • Optimized relief well surface locations (primary and contingency).
  • Validation of adequate design constraints (seabed, infrastructure, offset wells, metocean, directional constraints...).
  • Design of relief well trajectories with respect to all agreed constraints.
  • Generic high-level workflow from the planning stage to the interception.
  • Roles & responsibilities to ensure efficient communication during the relief well execution.
