Attendees are placed in “crews” and work together to determine the best approach to kill the critical situation. Kill methods are thoroughly discussed in order to select the best method and kill rate for a given situation. Kill plans are discussed and finalized within each crew.
A simulation on a deep well is conducted in real time that takes about 8 or 9 hours, provided things go well…but problems can develop. The crews meet the morning of the simulation and are introduced to the critical situation. Each crew determines the best kill method to use and develops a well control plan. The morning tour begins the operation – the evening tour is dismissed and returns to the class some hours later when they will take over and finish the operation – accurate and detailed handover material is crucial.
During the simulation data is collected to identify developing trends and for analysis after the well is dead. This course provides the student with knowledge and analytical skills needed to safely handle the “bad kick.”

Smith Mason Advanced Well Control - Covers the following:
Critical situations require analytical thinking. This course puts the students in critical situations – a high volume kick, a high intensity kick (2 ppg, 3 ppg MW increase.)…topics that aren’t addressed in standard well control courses.
