Hands-on Training

Well control training requires predominately hands-on training, including well control simulator, kill sheets, and worksheets where students solve actual wellsite problems. Programming on the well control simulator and worksheets has been heavily based on the challenges based on South Texas shales and brownfield recompletes.

Following completion of the course, the student should be able to balance downhole pressure, size rig equipment, and perform checks to determine kicks. The successful well control student should also be able to perform a constant bottom hole pressure kill competently. They will be tested and receive a card accredited by Eagle Ford Training San Antonio valid for 2 years.

Available in either drilling only or drilling with a completion and workover.
