This free, online e-learning resource is for well control and pressure control students who want to gain understanding, knowledge, practice and confidence in making well control and pressure control calculations.

The objective of this resource is to help students make accurate calculations during the well control training and assessment. It is extremely easy to make calculator errors that can result in well control incidents.

This online training is consistent with IWCF’s global format for calculations, terminology and abbreviations.

Calculation examples are shown in API (psi, ft, lb).
