Assume worstcase scenario:

- Influx remains as one slug

-Loss of HH due to expansion
across smallest annular cross-sectional
area, in most cases this is OH/DC

After string is stripped to bottom succesfully
Pchoke has been increased by several Pw
Extra Back pressure has been applied
BHP>Po

Use checklist as per EP 89-1500
Rig up as per checklist
Lubricate pipe
Remove sharp tong dies
Minimise annular closing pressure
Fill up each stand
Install grey valve, open kelly cock
Bleed of CE dp vol from Trip to Striptank
Monitor Triptank level increase for vol DV
Calculate Pw
Calculate Ps
Ensure all returns go to triptank
Avoid annular leakage
Avoid surgepressures
Use Range of accurate pressuregauges
Remove dp/csg protectors
Do NOT confuse strip and triptank

On BTM kill well using the Drillers Method

Questions:

What will happen with Pw and Ps when
there is no pipe in the hole?

Suggestions on action once bit is through
the influx??

How to operate if no stripping tank available?

Can we strip irrespective of wellbore pressure
when there is no pipe in the hole?
