Well Kill Using Wait and Weight Method (Balanced Method)
The “Wait and Weight” method is the method recommended, in some circumstances, for controlling an influx taken while drilling or circulating on bottom. When drillpipe (string) volume is greater than open hole volume, the influx will already be inside the casing before heavy mud reaches the open hole.
In this case the “Driller’s Method” can be a better solution as the danger of gas expansion is removed immediately while weighing up mud can take hours.
