Proc. ASME. OMAE2022, Volume 10: Petroleum Technology, V010T11A089, June 5–10, 2022
Paper No: OMAE2022-79570
... Abstract Multiphase flow pattern during gas kick is made more complex while drilling or circulating out the kick (dynamic conditions). The additional pressure losses due to friction when circulating significantly change the flow pattern in the annulus. This pattern also evolves as the fluid...

Proc. ASME. OMAE2021, Volume 10: Petroleum Technology, V010T11A043, June 21–30, 2021
Paper No: OMAE2021-63725
...Abstract Abstract Gas kick is a well control problem and is defined as the sudden influx of formation gas into the wellbore. This sudden influx, if not controlled, may lead to a blowout problem. An accidental spark during a blowout can lead to a catastrophic oil or gas fire. This makes early...

Paper No: OMAE2020-19071
... microstructure induces settling and sagging of weight material particles. The presence of sag has relatively often been the cause for gas kicks and oil-based drilling fluids are known to be more vulnerable for sag than water-based drilling fluids. Hence, the shear-dependent viscosity and elasticity of drilling...

Proc. ASME. OMAE2020, Volume 11: Petroleum Technology, V011T11A064, August 3–7, 2020
Paper No: OMAE2020-18630
...Abstract Abstract Understanding the interaction between the drilling fluid and the natural gas from a gas kick may be of great importance when predicting how a well control incident evolves during drilling operations. This is especially true for oil based mud, which has the ability to dissolve...

.../to a non-aqueous column of static fluid is very important to understand the dissolution of natural gas in an oil-based mud within a well. Studying how natural gas dissolves in an oil-based drilling fluid is of great significance due to risks that a gas kick in an oil-based mud poses to equipment...
