Second Line Supervisors Well Control Refresher

This refresher course is an intensive, condensed version of the Second Line Supervisor’s Well control Certificate (Test Well) program. You will be given the opportunity to perform well control procedures and demonstrate the proper response to hole and equipment problems using test well equipment and simulators. Travel is required to the Nisku Test Well Facility on the final day of the course, even if the classroom training is in Calgary.

DESIGNED FOR

Rig managers, wellsite supervisors, drilling engineers or drilling superintendents responsible for the execution and supervision of well control operations in the field.

TOPICS INCLUDE

  • Purpose of well control
  • Understanding wellbore pressures
  • Leak-off tests
  • Over-pressure and kick warning signs
  • Causes of kicks
  • Kicks with oil-based mud
  • Blowout prevention equipment and operation
  • Well control methods
  • Advanced well control situations, including:
    Managed pressure drilling and underbalanced wells
    Horizontal and multi-lateral wells
    High pressure high temperature wells
    Case studies
    Hands-on training at live test wells and with computer based simulators
  • A Second Line Supervisor's Well Control Certificate (can be expired, but not exceeding two years), with a minimum score of 85% on the previous exam. (This is in no way an extension to certificate validity and working with an expired ticket is not acceptable to the regulatory authorities. Extending the pre-requisite for a period of time is to facilitate training only)
  • Completion of the pre-course online horizontal well control module
