Use of Ice Plug as a Barrier - Case History
A coiled tubing unit was rigged up to set a plug after perforating a well. While RIH with a plug, the coiled tubing hit an obstruction and wobbled up inside the lubricator with the plug at tubing hanger. The tubing was stuck and couldn’t move up or down. The pressure on well was 2,000 psi. The presentation will discuss how freeze plug was set in the frac valves to have a barrier and isolate the pressure to rig up for fishing operations.

Using Coiled Tubing for Well Control Operations - Case History
A drilling rig encountered a well control situation while tripping out of the hole. The BHA was blown out of the well. This presentation details how a coiled tubing unit was rigged up and the well was killed. Due to rigging up coiled tubing, the well was brought in a condition where further work could be carried out.
