Stuart Wright Reviews Well Control Incidents for Offshore Field in Asia

Geothermal Well Drilling Survey

Stuart Wright has recently completed a review of a series of well control incidents that occurred in an offshore field in Asia.


In the process of drilling several wells in an offshore field, the client encountered several kick incidents that occurred within the same formation.

1. Commentary on the client's in-house investigation reports
