The original 1980 release, Well Control Problems and Solutions, was the most advanced well control document of it time. It was the basis for the first well control school ever certified by regulatory authority under current guidelines. The many well control and blowout control achievements over the last 15 years necessitated the publishing of this second edition. Kicks and Blowout Control is the most complete book available on kicks, blowouts, and related well control topics. It contains state-of-the-art kick handling procedures and is the most advanced and complete reference on blowouts. No other book in today's industry offers the comprehensive nature of this text.

Presenting a detailed account of responses in wells producing fluids (hydrocarbons, water/steam) from subterranean porous formations, this reference documents the foundations of the theories forming the basis of procedures for estimating the properties of underground reservoirs. It aims to explains the underlying assumptions of well test analysis in an easy-to-apply, coherent fashion. The book covers conservation principles, differential equations for flow through porous media, pressure build-up analysis, gas well analysis and convolution, and contains a variety of simple to follow mathematical expressions, drawings, tables and photographs.

This monograph emphasizes modifications in flow behavior that are caused by formation heterogeneity, making the exposition useful to both the novice looking for a general understanding and the experienced analyst looking to improve, or find alternatives to, existing methodology. Organizing a diverse body of information that is scattered throughout the international petroleum and groundwater literature, it illustrates the limitation of most current interpretational procedures, which are based upon theories developed for homogeneous, rather than heterogeneous, formations and presents the basic mathematical theories that have been advanced to describe pressure behavior in heterogeneous rock. A wide variety of heterogeneities are covered, including lateral permeability variation, vertical stratification, and natural fractures. Also discussed are sealing faults, interbedded shales, sand pinch-outs, finite drainage areas, and the influence of gas-oil and water-oil contacts within well drainage areas on the pressure performance. Actual text data are used to illustrate theoretical developments.
