Mechanisms of Shallow Waterflows and Drilling Practices for Intervention, ---Student Summary--- In reading this paper, the student concluded the following. When drilling in marine environments where the water depth is 1000 feet or more, there exists a risk associated with pressure release and fluid flows outside and inside the conductor pipe (CP). When there is a mechanism for abnormal formation pore pressure to be created and released beside the installation of CP, communication between the mud-line and the bottom of the conductor pipe can occur. The author lists the causes of these pressure and the mechanisms of their release as: ‘1) induced fractures from bad cement jobs, back
