well control

when i was reading about the well control i saw some thing says that the ((a kick could cause a drill pipe to stuck )) so Im wandering how that could happen .

RE: well control

A kick could force the drill pipe against the wall of well resulting in the piping being stuck.

RE: well control

ScotchWhisky has it right. Kicking a well could cause the drill pipe to become stuck.

RE: well control

A kick can cause a drill pipe stuck because when you have a kick that means the drill bit will not have enough time to mill/grind the formation so that will lead to cuttings being at bigger sizes than expected which means again that these cuttings may not be lifted up to surface and thus eventualy may cause a stuck pipe since it will gather down-hole.

RE: well control

Please look up differential pressure sticking.
