AADE Sends 36 Students to Well Control Training

The Lafayette Chapter of the American Association of Drilling Engineers (AADE) made it possible for 36 University of Louisiana students to receive well-control training through Wild Well Control Inc.

The students completed International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) WellCAP training covering well-control theory, techniques and related equipment. The students received WellCAP certification for their participation.

This initiative was funded by the AADE Lafayette and National chapters, in conjunction with the UL Petroleum Engineering Department.

“AADE is dedicated to giving these students every advantage possible as they embark on their future careers,” said AADE Vice President Jonathon Boudreaux. “Training opportunities such as this is just one way we can offer students a head start.”

The AADE, a nonprofit volunteer organization made up of independent chapters, offers a forum for the exchange of information, specifically on drilling-related topics.
