  2. Identify completion types, equipment functions and industry practices

  3. Identify barrier systems in coiled tubing operations and know the terminology

  4. Identify well control methods

  5. Identify solutions to various well control problems

  6. Determine if well control equipment is fit for purpose

  7. Identify and understanding the working of coiled tubing equipment

  8. Rigging up and testing well control and WL equipment

  9. How to deal with special situations arising from WL operations incidents

  10. Understand government and industry standards relating to coiled tubing operations on live and dead wells.


Course Delivery

The course is delivered through lectures supported by videos and animations, self-study exercises, and group discussions. The course concludes with two closed-book examinations leading to the required certificate of competence in well intervention. Certification is valid for two years.
