LRE, The Well Academy join forces in well control training

Lloyd’s Register Energy’s Training Academy and The Well Academy are working together to develop a new enhanced training program for well control certification.

Academy Training Manager and Technical Knowledge Manager for Lloyd’s Register Energy (LRE), Jeroen Bergevoet, pointed out that training staff is vital for safe, competitive and sustainable drilling operations.

He said: “Our delegates will be trained to use the very latest technologies, and also will be given complete insight into the criticality of human factors in well operations, which can be overlooked when operators are under pressure and time constraints.”

According to LRE, courses will offer delegates an advanced participative experience in well control certification training and well control equipment training, with classroom and case studies complimenting workgroup sessions.

Bergevoet added: “The combination of Lloyd’s Register Energy’s Training Academy and The Well Academy ensures a unique selection of training opportunities and course programs will be offered to drillers and engineers in Europe, America and across the world. Our training programs increase the competencies and skills of both inexperienced and experienced staff.”

LRE has explained that the courses are designed to reduce expensive travel and accommodation costs. The main cost saving for the industry, LRE says, is that the well control certification training and well control equipment training are now delivered in a one-week program, whereas in the past these were two separate programs. This saves mobilization and accommodation costs, and training time of rig crews, LRE says.

Ivo Nijhuis, Director of The Well Academy explained: “We are dedicated to offering team based training with advanced well control theory and equipment modules delivered in an interactive manner for both surface and subsea rig operations.”

“Using Crew Resource Management (CRM) concepts, the teams will use simulated sessions to demonstrate their procedural competency in dealing with well control equipment failures.”
The first course is anticipated to be ready for delivery in December 2015, enabling clients to deliver safe and efficient drilling operations.”
