    and this was in effect an "experimental" well?  All of these - BOP testing, loading the well before cementing, pressurizing the casing, checking the CBL before proceeding - are elementary safety practices, common even to the simplest low-pressure onshore wells.  

    When in doubt, tweak the freeqs.
