A vertical multi-zone gas well was drilled in the foothills region with a BHP up to 11,000 psi.. After completion of operations, the producer decided to abandon the bottom zone with a bridge plug, move uphole and land the tubing. A competitor was contracted to snub the bridge plug and completion, who chose to use a conventional unguided unit and install 10k bops. The surface pressure was 5300 psi. As they snubbed in the hole after three joints, the lower stripping rams failed, and the pipe had buckled in the stack. A decision was made to attempt to pull out of the hole, but the pipe wouldn't move, and personnel suspected a hydrate. Upon pulling, the pipe came free and launched, tagging top stripping ram and ejecting a joint from its connection. The well blew out and eventually hydrated off. A freeze job was done to secure the well further and remove the snubbing jack. A 7-10 master valve was installed on top of the stripping rams to secure the well, and the freeze plug was melted.
