Well control is the management of the dangerous effects of unexpected high pressures on the surface equipment of drilling rigs searching for oil and/or gas. Some type of drilling fluid is generally used to aid in well control. Failure to manage and control these pressure effects can cause serious equipment damage and injury/loss of life. Well control situations that are improperly managed cause blowouts, which is the uncontrolled and explosive expulsion of fluids from the well, usually resulting in a fire.  Well control includes the monitoring for the symptoms of impending pressure imbalance situations and the procedures for operating well site equipment to understand the situation and take remedial actions.

The blowout preventer is a five-story structure that contains devices that allow well operators to maintain control of the well. Once oil, gas or other fluids are flowing, various components of the blowout preventer can be used to seal the space between the drill pipe and the well bore. But one of the structure’s most critical roles is to stave off a disaster in a blowout — the sudden release of uncontrolled oil from the well

This Course could give a lot of benefits for personnel who involved in drilling/well control operations and also who may be attending well control instruction and assessment for the first time. Introductory training designed to give potential well control certification candidates an awareness of well control theory, practices and equipment in order to prepare them for testing.
