Wait and Weight Method (IADC WellSharp)

Welcome to W&W Method Prep Course.

Wait and Weight method is one of the methods to kill the well. The main objective of the kill method is to keep the bottom hole pressure (BHP) constant during the well killing operation. The W&W method consists of just one circulation in which the kill weight mud (KWM) is pumped into the well, and the influx is circulated out at the same time. There are more calculations required in the Wait and Weight method than in the Driller’s method. Therefore, this method is also known as the Engineer’s method of killing a well.
