Intervention Well Control
This new IADC WellSharp well control course is designed for operator representatives supervising workovers and interventions. This 5-day course concludes with successful candidates receiving an IADC WellSharp well control certificate for this type of operation. The course covers a wide variety of well control considerations for various intervention techniques/activities including coiled tubing, snubbing, and wireline operations. Well control equipment to conduct these types of operations is investigated as well as appropriate well control procedures. Satisfactory completion of the course requires passing the IADC WellSharp online assessment for this certification. No simulator test is required by IADC, however, students will have work sessions on the simulator performing well control operations using techniques such as bullheading, lubricate and bleed, reverse circulating, driller’s method and volumetric well control. This course is designed for surface (not subsea) wellheads.
