3 indicates that the drillpipe side of the U-Tube Model is more simple to analyze since the pressures are only influenced by mud of known density and pressure on the drillpipe that is easily measured. 6 describes the shut-in bottomhole pressure in terms of the total hydrostatic on the drillpipe side of the U-Tube Model. 7: Where: pb Pm D pa Pf h = Bottomhole pressure, psi = Mud &radlent, psi/ft =Well depth, feet = Shut-in casing pressure, psi = Gradient of influx, psi/ft = Height of the influx, feet Classic well control procedures, no matter what terminology is used, must keep the shut-in bottom hole pressure, 4, constant to prevent additional influx of formation fluids while displacing the initial influx to the surfhce.

Under these shut-in conditions, there is static pressure on the drillpipe, which is denoted by Pdp,and static pressure on the annulus which is denoted by Pa. The formation fluid, Py, has entered the annulus and occupies a volume defined by the area of the annulus and the height, h, of the influx. 3 indicates that the drillpipe side of the U-Tube Model is more simple to analyze since the pressures are only influenced by mud of known density and pressure on the drillpipe that is easily measured. 6 describes the shut-in bottomhole pressure in terms of the total hydrostatic on the drillpipe side of the U-Tube Model.

Close annular preventer; open pipe rams. Prepare to displace the kick. Classic Pressure Control Procedures 33 The number of feet of a drilling break to be drilled prior to shutting in the well can vary from area to area. However, an initial drilling break of 2 to 5 feet is common. The drillpipe should be spaced out to insure that no tool joints are in the blowout preventers. This is especially important on offshore and floating operations. On land, the normal procedure would be to position a tool joint at the connection position above the rotary table to permit easy access for alternate pumps or wire-line operations.
