Principles of the U-Tube

Duration: 30 min. lecture + Q&A afterwards

Managing many drilling operations requires a good basic knowledge of the Principles of the U-Tube. Operations such as drilling ahead, tripping, slugging pipe, performing a leak off test, MPD, and virtually all of the well control procedures cannot be safely and competently supervised without these principles being understood. This webinar defines what a u-tube is, how pressures at various locations of the u-tube relate to each other and how knowledge of the u-tube allows supervisors to predict, troubleshoot, and most importantly, keep the well under control.
