The International Well Control Forum, in co-operation with Oilennium, has produced an eLearning programme to give learners knowledge and understanding of the processes which take place during the well life cycle.
IWCF is gearing up to launch a new “Level 1” awareness course which will focus on the life-cycle of a well, with particular emphasis on well control. This new course will be the first free online based course aimed at personnel who have secondary involvement in well operations, for example office based staff or third parties who are involved in rig evacuations.
Following recommendations from the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) after the Macondo tragedy, this course supports IWCFs drive to increase understanding of how well control events can occur, their consequences and prevention methods.
Level 1 training modules include:
Available via the IWCF website, Level 1 training will be online in Q3 of 2015.
