Unformatted text preview: cording to the Transocean well control manual, there is approximately four times the mass of gas in a 15 barrel influx in 6,000 feet of water as there is in the same influx in 1,500 feet of water. 274 Early recognition of the warning signals and rapid shut‐in are the key to effective well control. 275 By taking well control actions quickly, the crew can minimize the amount of formation fluid that enters the wellbore. According to the Transocean well control manual, the rig crew can Hydrogen sulfide is a chemical compound that is highly flammable. BP‐HZN‐MBI00000060‐61 (pages 1‐4‐4 and 1‐4‐5). 273 BP‐HZN‐MBI00131628‐30 (pages 21 and 23). 274 Id. (Section 8, Subsection 4, page 22 of 28). 275 Id. (Section 3, Subsection 2, page 1 of 2). This is due to gas expanding as it moves towards the surface and as compressive pressure decreases. 271
