IWCF Level 4 addresses more advanced well control topics such as well kill operations and well control risk management. This IWCF certification course is taught by an IWCF 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 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 well bore while maintaining bottom hole pressure.
Participants must have completed IADC Driller / Supervisor Level or IWCF Level 3/4 prior to enrollment.
