Well Control Jobs

Well control is the process of maintaining the correct pressure in an oil well to avoid an unexpected release of oil or gas. During drilling, the formation pressure (gas, water or oil) opposes the drilling fluid pressure. If the formation pressure is greater than the drilling fluid pressure, there is the possibility of a blowout. Well control professionals are responsible for calculating pressures and making sure that a blowout does not occur.
