This Info Sheet briefly summarizes the results of a review of 172 Well Control Incident (WCI) reports submitted to IOGP by its Members through 2019. The objective of the review was to extract common findings, identify areas to focus attention
and to steer the Wells Expert Committee (WEC) agenda, communicate and share the information with industry. Our aim remains to reduce the well control risk and improve performance based on these submissions. The full results of this review are presented in IOGP Report 637R – Review of Well Control Incidents, available to employees of IOGP Member Companies through the IOGP Resources page.
