This revised and updated edition emphasizes prevention, safety, efficiency and horizontal/directional aspects of fishing and casing. With increased operating detail, it goes beyond explaining fishing by focusing on prevention. In addition to revisions of all technological aspects, the chapters are reorganized affording the reader a more accessible reference tool. New material includes discussion of formation-related problems causing fishing, as well as their effect on fishing; plug back and side track; fishing tools and operation; and new mills and improved overshots and back-off subs. Numerous examples and illustrations are also included for easy use and understanding.

The blowout of the Macondo well on April 20, 2010, led to enormous consequences for the individuals involved in the drilling operations, and for their families. Eleven workers on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig lost their lives and 16 others were seriously injured. There were also enormous consequences for the companies involved in the drilling operations, to the Gulf of Mexico environment, and to the economy of the region and beyond. The flow continued for nearly 3 months before the well could be completely killed, during which time, nearly 5 million barrels of oil spilled into the gulf. Macondo Well-Deepwater Horizon Blowout examines the causes of the blowout and provides a series of recommendations, for both the oil and gas industry and government regulators, intended to reduce the likelihood and impact of any future losses of well control during offshore drilling. According to this report, companies involved in offshore drilling should take a "system safety" approach to anticipating and managing possible dangers at every level of operation -- from ensuring the integrity of wells to designing blowout preventers that function under all foreseeable conditions-- in order to reduce the risk of another accident as catastrophic as the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill. In addition, an enhanced regulatory approach should combine strong industry safety goals with mandatory oversight at critical points during drilling operations. Macondo Well-Deepwater Horizon Blowout discusses ultimate responsibility and accountability for well integrity and safety of offshore equipment, formal system safety education and training of personnel engaged in offshore drilling, and guidelines that should be established so that well designs incorporate protection against the various credible risks associated with the drilling and abandonment process. This book will be of interest to professionals in the oil and gas industry, government decision makers, environmental advocacy groups, and others who seek an understanding of the processes involved in order to ensure safety in undertakings of this nature.

  • Operation Procedures on Black Oil Hydrates
  • Conclusion.
With millions of kilometres of onshore and offshore oil and gas pipelines in service around the world, pipelines are the life's blood of the world. Notorious for disrupting natural gas production or transmission, the formation of natural gas hydrates can cost a company hundreds of millions and lead to catastrophic equipment breakdowns and safety and health hazards. Written by an international group of experts, "Natural Gas Hydrates in Flow Assurance" provides an expert overview of the practice and theory in natural gas hydrates, with applications primarily in flow assurance. Compact and easy to use, the book provides readers with a wealth of materials which include the key lessons learned in the industry over the last 20 years. Packed with field case studies, the book is designed to provide hands-on training and practice in calculating hydrate phase equilibria and plug dissociation. In addition, readers receive executable programs to calculate hydrate thermodynamics. This title features: case studies of hydrates in flow assurance; the key concepts underlying the practical applications; and, an overview of the state of the art flow assurance industrial developments.

"This book gives a detailed description and analysis of the events leading up to the explosion and fire at BP's Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010. The authors provide a comprehensive, fair account of what happened and why, and what could be done to minimize the risk of future business and engineering disasters. Boebert and Blossom question the disaggregated business model for companies that undertake risky, complicated engineering projects in difficult and dangerous environments. They argue that a systems approach, with hands-on attention from top management, is crucial. Writing for the general intelligent reader, the authors provide a clear description of the technicalities of the rig, how it was supposed to work, and how it failed"-- Provided by publisher.
