LAFAYETTE, La. (Oct. 12, 2009) - The Lafayette Chapter of the American Association of Drilling Engineers (AADE) made it possible for 12 University of Louisiana students to receive well control training through Wild Well Control Inc.
The students completed International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) WellCAP training covering well control theory, techniques and related equipment on the UL campus. In addition, students were able to earn WellCAP certification.
This initiative was funded by a $3,000 donation from the AADE Lafayette Chapter to the UL Petroleum Engineering Department.
"The AADE is committed to providing our local students the best training possible to prepare them for their future and to be the future of our industry," said AADE President Jonathon Boudreaux. "As a former UL student and past AADE scholarship recipient, it gives me a great sense of pride that this organization can give back to our community."
The AADE, a nonprofit volunteer organization made up of independent chapters, offers a forum for the exchange of information, specifically on drilling-related topics.
