Wild Well Control mobilizes personnel to cap wells in Iraq
Wild Well Control, Inc., a subsidiary of Superior Energy Services, has been subcontracted by Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) and Halliburton's Energy Services Group to provide firefighting and well control services for wells damaged in Iraq.
Wild Well Control has mobilized well control specialists to the region to stand by for immediate deployment into Iraq to begin work once the oil fields have been secured. Specialized firefighting and well control equipment has already been transported to the region for use by the well control specialists.
The well control specialists will conduct an assessment of the damaged wells and work with others to regain control of the damaged wells in the most safe and efficient manner. Wild Well Control is an international supplier of firefighting, well control and related engineering services.
Based in Spring, Texas, Wild Well Control's twenty well control specialists and eight well control engineers respond to well control emergencies around the world each day—onshore and offshore.
Following the Gulf War in 1991, Wild Well Control was one of three US based well control companies initially contracted by Kuwait Oil Company to assist in regaining control of its oil wells. Upon conclusion of the war, Wild Well Control immediately dispatched three teams of well control specialists to Kuwait. During the course of this eight-month project, Wild Well Control's teams safely capped over 130 wells.
Superior Energy Services, Inc. provides specialized oilfield services and equipment primarily to major and independent oil and gas companies engaged in the exploration, production and development of oil and natural gas properties offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and throughout the Gulf Coast region.
These services and equipment include the rental of liftboats, rental of specialized oilfield equipment, electric and mechanical wireline services, well plug and abandonment services, coiled tubing services and engineering services. — (menareport.com)
