Well Control applied to oil well drilling and workover operations
Author: Well Control
We are a team of specialists in petroleum engineering with over 24 years of expertise in oil wells drilling and workover operations. We have in our portfolio Well Control Simulators for training and Monitoring Systems for the oil industry.
Our mission is to bring petroleum specialists and students innovative tools which will provide safety and efficiency to their work.
We develop this new app for iPhone and iPad by suggestions of users and well control schools !
This is a basic well control simulator for training in Oil & Gas that simulates the control applying the Volumetric Method (and Lubricate and Bleed Method) after the kick detection during stripping out the drillstring on the drilling operations in the oil well.
This is a new project also based on app “Kick Game 2” available in our portfolio like the Driller’s Method Simulator and Wait and Weight Method Simulator. Like these apps only surface parameters are displayed.
A useful tool for Oil & Gas students and professionals to calculate the Kick Tolerance on vertical and 3D directional wells. It provides a 3D well planning creation tool.
The Kick Tolerance provides to drilling engineers, chemists, students and other professionals in the petroleum industry a productivity helpful tool in the drilling operations (well control) and well planning step of oil wells.
This application deals the concept:
– Kick Tolerance as Maximum Kick Volume.
The Kick Tolerance calculations as maximum kick volume can be applied on vertical and 3D directional wells.
It provides a 3D well planning creation tool like our app “Directional Drilling”.
Compatibility with high resolutions screens of iPad Pro 12.9 inches and iPhone XS Max.

This app is a tool for application on deepwater drilling operations (Oil & Gas).
The slight increase in mud weight needed to offset the loss in hydrostatic pressure at bottom of the borehole when the riser is disconnected from the bop (emergency disconnection) and the hydrostatic pressure of the mud to the mud line into the drilling riser is replaced by the hydrostatic of the column of sea water.
Emergency disconnection can occur in blackout condition, failure of the dynamic positioning system, etc on drillship or semi-submersible platform.
1 – until 03 single kick bubbles on the borehole simultaneously
2 – standpipe manifold and choke manifold with 02 chokes and straight through
3 – Complications: failures schedule with Random option:
– Mud Pumps 1 and 2 “power end failure” or “fluid end failure”,
– Chokes 1 and 2 “plugged” or “washed”,
– One Drill Bit Nozzle “plugged” or “washed”
Drilling Simulator 3 LITE (This App)
all of drilling simulator 3 for 20 minutes of simulation:
This is a Lite version of the “Drilling Simulator 3” with full features for 20 minutes. This time is sufficient in this simulator for drilling until kick detection, shut-in the well, stabilization of pressures and to start the well circulation using a hydraulic choke panel to control.
