Simulations were immediately initiated by Add Energy specialists to evaluate the actual reservoir, well and flow conditions. The main focus was to confirm the blowout rate and potential flow paths in order to provide recommendations for the upcoming kill operation.
With intact wellhead, the plan was to stop the flow by surface intervention and pumping kill fluid down the production tubing.
The OLGA-WELL-KILL software, tailor made by Add Energy, was used to establish the likely leak path and match the actual flow conditions. Well kill simulations showed that a dynamic kill was possible due to low flow rate of gas and condensate. A detailed kill plan was prepared to assist the operator during the planning and execution process. The plan included recommendations with respect to pump rate, volumes and kill mud properties.
