IWCF Well Control Program
Course Description
One of the most important aspects of drilling wells in today’s oil industry is to control formation pressures. One indicator of this important aspect is the fact that regulatory bodies around the world require that specific personnel working in this industry either be trained in well control principles and procedures or be tested to prove their competence. This course is designed to enhance the candidates’ understanding of the basic fundamentals of well control. They will be prepared for the International Well Control Forum (IWCF) exam and gain comprehensive knowledge of well control theory and practices.
