The Well Control provides to drillers, tool pushers, engineers, chemists, students and other professionals in Oil & Gas industry a productivity tool helpful in drilling of oil wells the understanding the methods of well control.
This application uses the calculations of the methods to control oil wells after the occurrence of kick during drilling operations on floating platforms and landing rigs.

This version is completely interactive and allows users to define a wide variety of parameters for oil wells and unit systems, save data and more.
