Wild Well Control (WWC) has been named the exclusive provider for the Kick Assistance Program (KAP) for insurance provider, Berkley Oil & Gas Specialty Services, and managing general agency, J.H. Blades. The partnership is focused on providing clients with the means and tools necessary to quickly respond to and stop a well control incident before it becomes a costly well blowout.

WWC has more than 38 years of well control and blowout response experience.  The company responds to 80% of all well control incidents globally. “We are certainly best-known for our blowout responses, but we also provide the industry with certified training for worst-case scenarios,” Joe Dean Thompson, senior vice president for WWC, said. “We are pleased to be the exclusive provider for KAP, which has a focus on safety and prevention, and to provide Berkley Oil & Gas and J.H. Blades clients with rapid responses to their well control incidents.”

“To stop a well control incident and prevent loss for our clients, we are pleased to partner with Wild Well Control, the leader in well control response, safety, training and prevention,” Carol Randall, president of Berkley Oil & Gas, said. “Our companies have a shared philosophy that investing in the safety of the oil and gas industry and preventing a pressure control problem from becoming a blowout makes the industry better.”

Berkley Oil & Gas works with J.H. Blades, in which KAP provides the client with up to $50,000 for expenses incurred by WWC for their personnel and equipment needed to prevent a pressure incident from escalating into a blowout and from becoming a major loss costing millions in damages. “J.H. Blades is pleased to be part of this partnership,” Brian Krause, well control specialist with J.H. Blades said. “This program allows us to provide our clients with access to the best company in well response and prevent expensive losses. ”
