Well Control Methods for iPhone and iPod Touch 2.2


On the iTunes App Store

New in this update 2.2:

– Added Drillpipe2 to the drillstring;
– Added Liner;
– Volumetric Methods with drillstring in the wellbore;
– Improved performance on saving data file;
– Improvements with well configuration;
– Added buttons [Surface Stack] and [Subsea Stack] on main View.

This application uses the basic calculations of the methods to control oil wells after the occurrence of kick during drilling operations on floating platforms and land rigs.

It is can be applied in the oilfield of petroleum and also help in understanding the methods of well control.

Well Control Methods:

1. Driller’s Method

2. Wait and Weight

3. Dynamic Volumetric

4. Static Volumetric – Migration / Bleed

5. Static Volumetric – Lubricate / Bleed


6) calculations of Riser Safety Margin;

7) Included the formulas;

8) Ability to work with data files;

9) Sections: Riser, Casing, Liner and Open Hole;

10) Pop-up view to alert user about invalid values;

11) Send resume of methods by email.
