Over the past two years Oiltec has been training more than 1.500 students according to a program developed together with Statoil and Maersk Training Norway. “The Oiltec team is very enthusiastic about the initiative taken by IADC in co-operation with OGP, IWCF and the industry” says Lars Namork, Director in Oiltec.
We have retrieved from IADC the following message that we fully support:
A step-change in operational integrity and well control incident prevention
In August 2013, IADC announced the formation of the Well Control Institute (WCI), a game-changing shift in approach to well control training, assessment, and credentialing. The WCI will provide a single governance, single standard and single administration.
A New Model
The training and assessment standard developed by WCI will focus on learning and retention. It will emphasize realistic simulations and provide a reliable, secure standardized testing process that is verifiable.
Expected to be fully operational by mid-2014, the WCI will bring together all sectors of the drilling community to define and implement a new well control standard that will build on recommendations from the OGP Wells Expert Committee, the IADC WellCAP Advisory Panel, IWCF, and other industry stakeholders.
