Introduction To Well Control, Module 4: Pressure Balance
Pressure Balance: Topics covered in this module are how the drill string and annulus can be represented as a U-tube, differences between normal, abnormal and subnormal formation pressures, and balancing formation pressures with hydrostatic pressure of the drilling fluid.
The premise of Introduction to Well Control computer based training course is that every member of the rig crew should understand the fundamental principles of well control in order to obtain the highest degree of safety during drilling operations. This self-paced interactive multimedia program takes a rig hand through the basic concepts of well control in an easy to understand, straight-forward manner. 3D animations, graphics and other visual imagery are used to quickly communicate complex subject material to manpower with diverse technical backgrounds and language skills.
