Scenario-Based Well Control Training
- IOGP 501, 502 and 503: IOGP’s Wells Expert Committee has developed a number of resources designed to promote non-technical skills for drilling and intervention operations, known as Well Operations Crew Resource Management (WOCRM). Specifically, these are IOGP 501, Crew Resource Management for Well Operations Teams; IOGP 502, Guidelines for implementing Well Operations Crew Resource Management training; and IOGP 503, Behavioural Markers for Assessing Well Operations Crew Resource Management skills. These documents are designed to introduce well operations crews to WOCRM skills in stand-alone courses that may or not include simulation. It is hoped that over time these skills can be routinely practiced and assessed in ongoing technical well control training and refreshers.
- IADC WellCAP Plus: IADC’s WellCAP Plus course can serve as an alternative to renewing Supervisor well control training for experienced personnel. WellCAP Plus is a team-based training course, focused on team problem solving of well control problems presented in progressively more difficult scenarios. It utilizes facilitation rather than instruction, and provides coaching rather than a formal exam.
