Energy Workforce Launches SecureWell Certification Program

Energy Workforce has launched the SecureWell: Well Control Certification Program, signaling the industry’s newly revitalized efforts to address the specifics of well control, operation, security and safety.

SecureWell’s mission is to provide industry standards for effective equipment selection and purpose-driven practical well control training for cased hole applications. The certification course will serve as the premiere training program for well containment and control for cased hole well servicing. Designed to create a comprehensive base of knowledge and understanding, participants will be able to later bridge their knowledge to operations-specific training.

“The launch of SecureWell is the result of years of work by the Well Servicing Committee. Without their dedicated time, energy and technical expertise, this program would not be possible. There is no doubt that SecureWell will be an essential part of oil and gas training.”

Energy Workforce President Tim Tarpley

SecureWell is the first industry training to teach proper selection, installation and use of primary barriers when working in a live hydrocarbon environment. Unlike other programs of its kind, the SecureWell course requires both classroom training and hands-on practical field assessment and skills verification, giving participants a comprehensive knowledge of the cased hole well operations process.

“SecureWell is a groundbreaking program that will benefit both service companies and operators alike. Enhancing the safety and security of cased holes is critical to our growth as an industry. As the industry continues to innovate, defining best practices will help streamline processes and ensure the safety of the men and women working in the field. We are grateful to our membership for their dedication in seeing this program through from conception.”

Energy Workforce President Molly Determan

SecureWell was created by well control and well servicing experts, including Axis Energy Services, Brigade Energy Services, C&J Well Services, ClearWell Dynamics, Key Energy Services and Ranger Energy Services.

Energy Workforce partner Vorenkamp Well Control Training holds upcoming courses in Odessa, TX; Williston, ND; and Tyler, TX.
