Abstract This paper analyzes well control for horizontal wells. It presents a computer model for predicting the pressure behavior in a horizontal well during gas-kick removal and analyzes the simulation results for several field conditions. The paper also analyzes the drillpipe-pressure schedule, the kick-tolerance concept, and the swabbing effect during tripping out of the hole.
