Proactive planning

It is essential to create a Well Control Contingency Plan (WCCP) to help prevent catastrophic events. We can design or review a WCCP, recommend improvements, and establish an efficient blowout intervention program before the event occurs to minimize costs, time, and disruption.

Incident mitigation

A predetermined site-specific plan should be in place for effective and efficient well control. Designed to reduce potential loss of life and damage to the environment or assets, the Incident Command Team can quickly activate to minimize distribution.

WCCP is a custom response guide for one or more wells, supplementing the Emergency Response Plan (ERP), and is used in conjunction with the ERP and the Corporate Crisis Communication Plan.​

The WCCP provides guidelines to assist in effectively managing the initial stages of a well control incident. The primary goal is to provide tools to enable an efficient, coordinated, and effective response to an incident and to plan and execute appropriate response measures and actions necessary to regain control of a well blowout.

The WCCP guides a first responder in the assessment of a blowout. The guide supports a coordinated response at the well site.. It establishes an organizational hierarchy and a recognized chain of command.

As an incident escalates, responders should continually evaluate the effectiveness of actions in the plan and make the appropriate adjustments to mitigate the incident based on training and experience.​
