IADC leads drilling industry into new era of well control training with launch of WellSharp

Posted on 23 April 2015 in 2015, IADC: Global Leadership, Global Challenges, May/June

A competent drilling sector is one of the most important enablers for the global oil and gas industry, and effective well control is the key to safe, clean and efficient drilling operations. This philosophy is at the heart of IADC’s new WellSharp well control training and assessment program.

WellSharp replaces the former WellCAP training, offering an enhanced program and training standard that provides rigorous training and assessment to every person with well control responsibilities, whether office-based or rig-based.

“IADC’s WellSharp provides the industry with the necessary tools and support to deliver significantly improved performance in the area of well control,” Stephen Colville, IADC President and CEO, said. “Further, it is owned and nurtured by the whole industry and will play an important part in improving the industry’s overall performance and improving safety.”
