4( Well-7illing Proced#re
(Conversation between a rig manager and a supervisor)
Supervisor: What measures should we ta'e when a well 'ic' occurs?
Rig Manager: Hirst. shut in the well. read the pressures. calculate the mud
density re$uired to 'ill the well. and then 'ill the well!
Supervisor: What does the 9=( stac' or a category well consist o?
Rig Manager: %t consists o a annular preventer. a double ram type preventer.
a spool. a single ram preventer and sometimes a crossover
Supervisor: 6enerally what mud materials will be used to 'ill a well?
Rig Manager: Certain amount o white stone powder. and sometimes 9aS=$
or iron ore will be used when a ormation pressure is
Supervisor: "ow does a 'ic' occur?
Rig Manager: ) 'ic' occurs when the bit reaches a high/pressure ormation.
and oil. gas or water enters the well bore!
Supervisor: What should we do i we lose control o a well?
Rig Manager: Hirst. evacuate the personnel to the saety Cone. then manage
to shut the well. install the well head and 'ill the well through
the cho'e maniold!
Supervisor: "ow long does the 'illing operation usually ta'e?
Rig Manager: 2ormally one or two circulations!
Supervisor: What will happen when oil or gas cuts into the drilling luid?
Rig Manager: *here will be a decrease in mud density. an increase in mud
viscosity and a gain in mud volume!
Supervisor: %s the lag time oten measured during the drilling?
Rig Manager: Bes. it is! We measure the lag time every : hours in order to
accurately calculate the 'ill time!
Supervisor: What is the density dierence between the mud in and mud/out
during a normal well/'illing operation?
Rig Manager: %t is less than ,!,+ g?cm+!
Supervisor: What should the tool pusher do when a 'ic' occurs?
Rig Manager: "e must report it to the supervisor and the rig manager
Supervisor: What is the criterion or the 'ill mud density?
Rig Manager: *he density must be less than the ormation racture pressure!
Supervisor: What is the warning sign beore a 'ic' or blowout occurs?
Rig Manager: ) drilling brea' will be experienced!
Supervisor: "ow do you deal with the blowout in the lower section and the
lost circulation in the upper section?
Rig Manager: Set cement plug to pac' o the lower section and circulate the
cement slurry to get circulation!
Supervisor: "ow should we deal with a 'ic' in the upper section when we
are drilling the deep section o a well?
Rig Manager: Hirst. circulate the plug o heavy mud to 'ill the well. and then
run casings to pac' o the 'ic' section!
Supervisor: What should we do i the drill stem is bro'en above the 'ic'
section when we are 'illing the well?
Rig Manager: Circulate the excess heavy mud to balance the ormation
pressure. and then ish!
4) Effect of 7illing Operation
(Conversation between a rig manager and a supervisor)
Rig Manager: What is the eect o the 'illing operation ater two
Supervisor: Bou can identiy by the low rate meter that the displacement o
the pump has been the same as the mud volume rom the well!
Rig Manager: What is the dierence between mud in and out densities?
Supervisor: )round ,!,+g?cm
Rig Manager: *he mud viscosity is still higher than it was beore the 'ic'
occurred. do you 'now the reason?
Supervisor: %t is because the oil and gas cut into the mud. and the mud has
been contaminated!
Rig Manager: "ow do you solve the problem that the volume o the mud in
is less than that o the mud out?
Supervisor: Iust continue with the 'illing operation and raise the mud
density by ,!,0g?cm
Rig Manager:*he volume o the mud out is much less than beore. why is
Supervisor: *here probably occurs a circulation loss!
Rig Manager:What shall we do then?
Supervisor: Bou must pull out o the hole with drill string to the saety
Rig Manager: *he casing pressure decreased by 4!0M(a! &o we still need to
'ill the well through the cho'e maniold?
Supervisor: Iust 'eep 'illing the well or one circulation and then ma'e the
decision according to the mud return!
Rig Manager: Can the gas/cut mud treated by the degasser still be used?
Supervisor: Bes. it can be used again ater being treated with mud additives!
Rig Manager: Can we ta'e up drilling right ater the well has been 'illed?
Supervisor: 2o. you can3t! Bou have to observe or at least one circulation
beore you decide!
Rig Manager: *he 'ic' is more severe than it was beore the 'ill. what shall
we do?
Supervisor: Raise the 'ill mud density and 'ill the well through the cho'e
Rig Manager: *he shut/in casing pressure is not high. can we 'ill the well
through mud pump?
Supervisor: Bes. you can. but youAd better 'ill the well through the 'ill line!
Rig Manager: &o we have to do next ater the well has been 'illed
successully through a relie well?
Supervisor: % thin' weAd better pac' o the hole with slurry!
Rig Manager: "ow should we 'ill the well when the dierence o the
ormation pressure coeicients is getting too big?
Supervisor: )dd some 1CM in the 'illing luid!
Rig Manager: % the high/pressure oil and gas ormation has been balanced.
but there is still a great deal o lost circulation in the upper
section. what should we do?
Supervisor: % thin' the big/particle weighting material mixed with 1CM
will wor'!
Rig Manager: 2ow. the well has been 'illed successully at last7 Can we
ta'e a brea'?
Supervisor: 2o. we can3t relax at the moment! We must 'eep a close and
constant eye on the mud displacement and the variations o
the mud properties!
Rig Manager: "ow shall we handle the problem that the drill string lea's
while we are 'illing the well?
Supervisor: 1ocate the lea' position with colored mud! % the position is

Hloorman : 6enerally two circles are needed. you may circulate a little
longer i there are too much cuttings on the shale sha'er!
Supervisor:Why do we need to circulate ater running to the bottom?
Hloorman: We circulate to bring the cuttings out o the hole!
Supervisor :Why is the drilling luid circulation needed ater running the
Hloorman : %t is to clean the hole wall and improve the $uality o the
Supervisor:What is the indication o lost circulation during the circulating?
Hloorman: *he return and pump pressure decrease when there is small lost
circulation. there will be no mud return while the lost
circulation is serious!
Supervisor:What is the result when the oil and gas come into the mud?
Hloorman: *he viscosity will increase and the low rate will go up!
Supervisor :Can we measure the circulating pressure by using the slow

4! to clean the hole!
4! to cool the bit!
4! to prevent the ormation rom collapse!
4! to lubricate the drilling tools!
4! *o balance the ormation pressure!
4! to remove cuttings rom the bottom o the hole!
Supervisor:"ow long does the circulating well 'illing ta'e?
