SafeVision and Kick Tolerance

SafeVision Kick Tolerance

SafeVision's Kick Tolerance module is probably the most complete kick tolerance tool available on the market. Since the software includes most if not all commonly used kick tolerance inputs, it can be used initially to display conventional kick tolerance values. But with the optional use of additional, selected parameters that exceed most current kick tolerance practices (temperature effects, fluid compressibility including afterflow, variable influx density, complex gas behavior, and additional wellbore weak points), SafeVision's kick tolerance displays are based on unusually sophisticated, but user friendly inputs, providing valuable detail that contributes to more effective planning, monitoring, and well control decision making.

SafeKick's products are based on a deep understanding of both the physics underlying kick tolerance calculations and the ways in which kick tolerance can constructively contribute to better management of three critical stages of the drilling process:
