Course Detail

IADC Well Sharp - Surface Stack :(Introductory Level)
Duration:5 Days


The objective is to lay a solid foundation in well control concepts and competency for entry-level rig operation positions as well as those not directly associated with rig operation, such as office personnel. This course is strongly recommended for first time well control candidates and prior to taking IADC Well Cap Course in Fundamental Level & Supervisory Level. The objective of this training is to increase the candidates knowledge and understanding of well control theory, practice and equipment. This will help prepare the candidates to deal with most well control situations.

U-Tube concept, gas laws, basic math skills, pressure basics, kick detection, kill sheet, drilling fluids, BOP equipment, shut-in procedures, and basic methods of well control etc. will be all covered. At the end of this course, delegates should be able to demonstrate familiarity with an understanding of the equipment, principles and procedures associated with rotary drilling well control in preparation for IADC Well Cap testing at Level 2. The successful candidate will be issued with a certificate valid for five years.

Course Overview

The course duration is five days. Course starts on Tuesday at 0830 hrs. & finishes on Saturday at 1400 hrs. For first three days extensive class room teaching is followed by practical sessions on simulator. Assignment containing questions pertaining to days curriculum are given and discussion on assignment is taken up in the next morning.

On fourth day a mock test is conducted which is an in-house test based on IADC Well Cap pattern. This is to access the performance of the participants and prepare them for the final test. Individual attention is given to the participants based on the results of the Mock test. Simulator Practical Assessment. On fifty day, there will be written examination and certification.
