Comments being accepted for proposed change to WellCAP; vote to be held 17 November

Posted on 22 October 2010

The IADC Well Control Committee has proposed a change in methodology for combining WellCAP courses. Under the proposal, the Drilling course curriculum will be either a standalone course or a combination course with workover/completion only; combining drilling with any other course that does not have similar operational approaches to well control will not be permitted.

IADC is accepting comments from industry and other interested parties on the proposal. Comments must be submitted by 5 November to IADC director of accreditation & certification Brenda Kelly. Please use the subject line “Comments on WellCAP Proposal.”

The vote on the proposal will be held at the next Well Control Committee meeting, scheduled for 17 November 2010 at the Falck Alford Training Center in Houston. The vote will be taken in accordance with IADC Well Control Committee procedures, which includes absentee balloting procedures. Committee voting procedures can be found on the IADC website.

Absentee ballots will be distributed to Well Control Committee members no later than 1 November 2010. Those who anticipate submitting absentee ballots are urged to notify IADC as soon as possible to ensure that they receive the necessary materials. Those who plan to attend the meeting in person can register in advance.

Should the Curriculum Subcommittee modify the proposal as the result of comments received, notice of the change will be provided to the Well Control Committee and WellCAP-accredited training providers prior to the vote.
