The course focuses on the duties and responsibilities of those working at operator level in well completions and/or well servicing operations.
The aim of this course ( IWCF Level 4 Well Intervention Pressure Control) course is to develop the candidate’s knowledge and understanding of well intervention pressure control. The Level 4 course focuses on the duties and responsibilities of an individual working in a supervisory role. The course includes compulsory training and assessment in Completion Equipment and Completion Operations; with optional modules including Coiled Tubing Operations, Wireline Operations, and Snubbing Operations (at least one of the optional modules must be selected).
The course covers the following modules
Completion equipment: The function, application and positioning of a wide range of completion equipment and the purpose and function of Xmas trees in pressure control.
Completion Operations: Detailed descriptions and explanations for the various well control methods will be provided with are view of the advantages and disadvantages of each method for a given application.
