In 2012, Wild Well Control recorded 96 responses to blowout and pressure control events worldwide, which is an improvement based on the average ratio of well control events to the number of wells drilled, Steve Vorenkamp, vice president – training management at Wild Well Control, said. Mr Vorenkamp discusses factors affecting industry’s well control statistics with Drilling Contractor associate editor Joanne Liou in this exclusive video from the 2013 IADC Well Control Conference of the Americas last week in Galveston.
