Offshore Blowouts: Causes and Control
Discover why more than 100 offshore well operations erupted into destructive blowouts - and learn how to prevent them. This book, based on the SINTEF Offshore Blowout Database, helps you avoid the unfortunate mistakes of others. It thoroughly investigates and explains the blowouts that occurred from 1980 to 1994 in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea. You will learn which operations (drilling, completion, production, workover, wireline) were in progress at the onset of 124 different blowouts. This book also reveals the causes for the loss of primary and secondary barriers and outlines the fatal accidental rates. Complete references and a glossary make this volume a necessary tool for petroleum engineers and drilling, production, and workover personnel.
