Wild Well, Check-6 to Develop Well Control Training for O&G Industry

In a press conference during the Offshore Technology Conference, Wild Well announced a joint agreement with Check-6 to develop the next generation of well control training for the oil and gas industry.

The partnership will result in a new standard of training by providing the industry with access to the most advanced computer based training and learning techniques available.

“Wild Well is dedicated to offering a well control training program that will elevate the job performance of industry professionals to prevent well control incidents. We are pleased to partner with Check-6, a leader in personnel training programs,” said Bill Mahler, executive vice president and general manager of Wild Well. “Our companies have a shared philosophy that investing in personnel training makes the industry better, safer and more prepared in daily operations.”

The training partnership will focus on advancing well control training courses using methods designed for adult learning while incorporating new teaching and learning techniques in lecture, computer based training, and hands-on simulation exercises.

“Check-6 is pleased to be in this partnership,” said Yarko “JJ” Sos, CEO of Check-6, “Working in conjunction with Wild Well, we will be able to provide the industry with the most advanced well control program to maximize personnel knowledge and skills, ensuring proper recognition and response to operational challenges.”

Wild Well has four decades of well control and blowout response experience. The company responds to 80 percent of all well control incidents globally. “We are certainly best-known for our blowout response, but we also are the industry leader in well control training,” said Bill Mahler. Wild Well currently certifies 11,000 industry professionals each year in well control.
