The Supervisor course addresses more advanced well control topics such as well kill operations and well control risk management. It builds upon the IADC approved Driller course. Following IOGP 476 Guidelines, this IADC certification course is taught by an IADC accredited instructor. Re-certification is required every two years.
This certification course is designed to include well control theory and practical exercises. Participants engage in activities designed to gauge their understanding of Well Control. Well Control policies and procedures are taught from industry best practices.
Participants must demonstrate how to identify the warning signs of a kick, shut in the well using the correct sequence, analyze any post shut-in problems, line up to carry out the Well Control operation, and circulate kick fluids out of the wellbore while maintaining bottom hole pressure.
Students have practical exercises in a full-sized conventional simulator - an experience unavailable at most Well Control Schools
