Case Study - Uncontrolled Well Blowout

Killdeer, North Dakota

On September 1, 2010, the Forefront Emergency Management team was contracted by a responsible party to assist in the planning, finance and Incident Command System roles for an uncontrolled well blowout located approximately 2.70 miles southwest of Killdeer, North Dakota. As a result of the incident, produced water, fractionation water, and crude oil were released onto the well pad and recovered by vacuum trucks.

Forefront worked with a number of regulatory agencies in the response to this incident, including the North Dakota Industrial Commission, Dunn County Emergency Planning Committee and the North Dakota Department of Health. As a result of our efforts, a well control contractor was able to engineer a well kill just a few days after the occurrence of the incident.
