Scenario Well Control

Duration: 3 days

About this course

This program combines team-based scenario exercises on the DS5000 rig floor simulator with classroom sessions where the basic principals of human factors as well as advanced theoretical well control concepts are studied. The delegates will be assigned together in teams and will be faced with several simulated real-life well control related scenarios.


Although there is no hard prerequisite, delegates are expected to have basic well control knowledge (IWCF/IADC level 3 or 4). Ideally, rig teams are trained in their normal setup, with the following positions attending:

  • Drillers and assistant drillers
  • Toolpushers
  • Rig Managers
  • Drilling supervisors
  • Drilling Engineers
  • Drilling Managers
  • Operations Managers


Delegates will receive a certificate from Well Academy on completion of the course.
