A. The Rule of Thumb to determine a kill rate is to consider an average annular velocity of 40 to 50 fpm around the drill collars.
B. The Minimum Mixing Rate result is based on the Slow Pump Rate.

A GENERAL WELL KILL PROCEDURE


1. Increase mud weight in active pits to KILL WEIGHT.
2. Zero stroke counters. Start pump and simultaneously open choke. Pressure on the choke initially should be the
shut-in casing pressure and this pressure should be maintained while the pump rate is brought up to the kill rate.
3. HOLD PUMP RATE CONSTANT and adjust choke so that the drill pipe pressure follows the calculated schedule.
If drill pipe pressure is too high, open the choke slightly; if it is too low, close choke slightly. Takes approximately
one second per thousand feet of hole to see a response at gauge when the choke setting is altered.
4. After the Kill Mud has filled the drill pipe, MAINTAIN CONSTANT PUMP RATE and CONSTANT DRILL PIPE
PRESSURE until the annulus is filled with the kill mud.
5. When kill weight mud reaches surface, stop the pump and shut well in. At this time, the casing pressure and drill pipe
pressure should be zero. If some pressure still exist on casing, open choke slightly and bleed a small amount or
volume of mud. If the well is dead, pressure should fall to zero and there should be no flow from well.
