The call to the office

 

These pictures were taken by a Canadian Snubber in Iran. He was working on a nearby rig, snubbing on a live well. The same Iranian NOC, was running both rigs. They had the same well control problems on both wells, but decided running 2 snubbing units was too expensive, so opted not to sunb out of hole on the well that blew out. They went pipe light, and to solve the problem, started bullheading kill mud into the annulus! No one was injured in the incident.
