Message Subject Uncontrolled gas flowing from well in Gulf of Mexico UPDATE: Trying to stop it from moving underground
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
A natural gas well located approximately 50 miles east of Venice in the Gulf of Mexico is releasing gas uncontrolled and has been evacuated, according to a report today in Fuel Fix, an energy news website operated in part by the Houston Chronicle. The site reports 15 workers were evacuated from the Ensco 87 rig, which sits in 218 feet of water, after tests found natural gas had migrated from the 8300-foot well to a sand formation approximately 1100 feet below the seabed. This uncontrolled flow happened after a blowout preventer had been activated.

This is a shitty blowout. They have to go about this totally different now if I understand the bold part right. Could they have exceed the frac gradient? Industry common knowledge below of how they try to handle conventional blowouts. They probably are gonna have to write the book on this one as they go along.
