Well Control Institute
The Well Control Institute is a new organization devised by the IADC to dramatically improve the Well Control training process. The goal of the new organization is to develop an international standard that allows people to focus on their jobs and truly master Well Control competency.
The goal is to bring everyone together in one, central organization that is focused exclusively on Well Control. Operators, contractors, equipment manufacturers, and service providers all brought together into one central organization.
The idea and vision for the Well Control Institute came from the WellCap Advisory Panel, initially devised with the idea of improving the WellCap standard governing international well control training and accreditation. Ultimately, the panel realized that there was an importance in addressing the entire Well Control training ecosystem, not just the standard. And so, the Well Control Institute was born.
