Gallery – Northern BC Blowout

This blowout occurred in the Brassy area of north east  B.C. It involved several very complicating conditions, extreme heat from 26,000 B/D  of condensate,  a square kelly caught mid point across the drilling table &  a very soft hillside lease in spring runoff conditions. Note the lower part of the final capping stack had the bag type BOP in the unusual “inverted” position  , this was done to protect and isolate the casing annulus as it was  unable to withstand the required kill pumping pressures.
