Graphical representation of the drilling history and drilling-related pressure indicators of the Geretsried GEN-1 well. a Pressure in equivalent mud weight (EMW) in g/cm3 vs. true vertical depth (TVD) with drilling mud weight MW (brown line), hydrostatic pressure Hyd (blue-dotted line), influx events (red dots and annotations), other overpressure indications (purple annotations) and stratigraphic tops. b Total gas readings while drilling on a logarithmic scale in percent (red lines and dots) and casing points (black triangles). c Simplified lithological profile based on cutting descriptions from the geological well report (legend on the bottom provides key for lithotypes)
