Wild Well Control reveals new subsea capping stack in Singapore

Wild Well Control, Inc., a Superior Energy Services company focused on firefighting and well control, has unveiled its new subsea capping stack for response to a global deepwater well control incident.

The subsea capping stack, located in Singapore, is a part of Wild Well’s comprehensive emergency response system, WellCONTAINED™, which provides experienced personnel and equipment to plan, prepare and respond to global subsea well control events.

Based on nearly four decades of conventional and subsea well control experience, the WellCONTAINED system not only includes the physical capping stack and equipment but also technical planning, advanced engineering and response training, Wild Well explains.

The Singapore capping stack is Wild Well’s second unit; the first capping stack unit is located in Aberdeen. The full intervention system at each location includes a capping stack, debris removal shears, hardware kits for the subsea application of dispersant and inhibition fluids at a wellhead and ancillary equipment.

The new 18-3/4” 15K capping stack is available for a variety of offshore conditions and designed for subsea use up to 10,000 feet. The system is maintained in a state of readiness and can quickly be transported by sea or air, Wild Well says.

“Since we now have two capping stacks geographically located in the northern and southern hemispheres, our team at Wild Well can provide an enhanced level of response to a client’s well site,” said Freddy Gebhardt, president at Wild Well. “Our flexibility to deploy from two strategic locations now mitigates any potential delays due to deployment constraints and adds another level of assurance to the operators’ drilling programs while positioning Wild Well as the global leader in subsea well control.”

Wild Well responds to 80 percent of international well control incidents and is a key resource for many of the world’s largest oil and gas operators, assisting not only during emergency events, but also in the planning and preparedness of drilling programs.
