Enhanced Well Control - Level 4

IWCF certification: “Combined Surface/Subsea BOP” - Certified IWCF training center

WEL/EWCL4

Who should attend?

  • This course aims to improve the Well Control knowledge for senior personnel to a new higher level beyond the current IWCF Level 4 Well Control training and assessment with also Well Operations CRM. Furthermore it includes IWCF Level 4 Equipment and Principles & procedures tests and simulators assessment allowing passing candidates to obtain the IWCF Level 4 certificate.
  • Scenario-based simulated exercises are used extensively to consolidate the theory presented in a classroom environment using interactive teaching strategies. This focus on the practical application of the theory promotes effective communication, teamwork, and enhances problem-solving skills.
Audience :
  • IWCF Enhanced Well Control training is specifically designed for experienced candidates who require certification that goes beyond the standard IWCF Drilling Well Control Level 4 syllabus.

Level : Advanced

  • know the well control methods and demonstrate the ability to kill the well,
  • detect potential incidents during well control and take appropriate actions,
  • manage: kick control in horizontal well, volumetric method, stripping pipes in the well, lubricate and bleed procedure, bullheading method,
  • obtain the level 4 IWCF Well Control certification.
