  7. Abstract:
  8. During the drilling of oil and gas wells, the probability of a kick resulting in blow out is high. In the event of a kick, well should be controlled immediately and prevented blowing out. Common methods include: driller method, wait and weight method and concurrent method. In this project, simulation of well control process is done for common well control methods, for water based muds and oil based muds. Movement of different fluids, their combination and removal of fluid from the well are simulated and the results are listed. The flash calculations are done for oil based mud and dissolution of kick fluid in the oil based mud is considered. After simulating and calculating necessary parameters, optimization of well control process is done and the variables are set in a way that minimized the time of well control
