plug and allow it to set in casing head seat.
: Make sure that the test plug has the integral port. If not, a perforated sub should be used with the test plug. Ensure that the casing head valves are open for the reasons discussed earlier. 2.
Make necessary connections at the rig floor to pump through drill pipe with the help of cementing unit or test pump. Purge all air from drill pipe and preventer. Fill the preventer with water, if required. 3.
Close valve no.7& 9 on choke line and 3 & 6 on kill line (nearest to the stack). 4.
Close annular preventer with appropriate closing pressure as per manufacturer's recommendations. 5.
Check closing line and annular preventer for leaks. 6.
Apply test pressure through drill pipe and raise pressure to 15 to 25 kg/cm2. Hold for 3 mins. Check for any leakage. If pressure is holding, increase and the pressure upto final test pressure as decided and hold for 5 minutes. 7.
Check for leaks and release pressure. 8.
Open annular preventer and check opening lines for leakage. 9.
Now close upper pipe ram with 105.6 kg/cm2 ( 1500 psi)
Be sure that ram size fits with the drill pipe size 10.
Check closing line and preventer for leaks. 11.
Again apply test pressure through drill pipe and raise pressure upto 15 to 25 kg/cm2. Hold for 3 mins. Check for any leakage. If the pressure is holding then increase the pressure upto final test pressure as decided and hold for 5 minutes. Test pressure should be limited to the pressure rating of the weakest member exposed to the test pressures. 12.
Check for leaks and release pressure. 13.
Open pipe rams with 105.6 kg/cm2 (1500 psi) 14.
Check opening lines for leaks. 15.
Test all other pipe rams in this manner by repeating step no.9 to 14. Make sure that the pipe rams size fits the drill pipe size in the well. lf not, take corrective measure and then test the rams.
