HWO Snubbing Pressure Control

Milling and washing below production tailpipe

Fishing stuck or lost tools, DHSVs, coiled tubing

Wells that cannot be killed because of heavy cross-flow between zones or other downhole problems that cause inability to hold a full column of fluid

Why This Course Is Essential

Awareness is the key to prevention!

Snubbing/Hydraulic Workover Units (HWO) are used for Snubbing operations or dead well intervention. Snubbing is the process of stripping pipe into a well which has a surface pressure high enough to eject the pipe if no restraining force is applied; this condition is termed Pipe Light. Stripping is the term used for moving pipe through a closed BOP into or out of the well. In practice, snubbing has become the term for all operations conducted using Snubbing units and HWO equipment.

HWO units are often used instead of conventional drilling or work over rigs for dead well intervention operations, they are cheaper and easier to mobilize than a rig.

Snubbing is performed by introducing an internally plugged pipe into a live well using BOP’s to obtain an external seal around the pipe. The pipe is filled with fluid during RIH to prevent pipe collapse. The top of the pipe is run open ended.

In less than  seven hours, this course helps provide a basis for developing a culture of safety and well control among the operational workforce whilst performing their duties.

  • Achieve an internationally recognized and respected certification for staff
  • Enhance your reputation within the oil and gas industry.

Organizations will gain (direct and indirect) the following:  

  • Employees who receive training have increased confidence and motivations;
  • Lower cost of production –eliminates risks because trained personnel are able to make better
  • Lower turnover –brings a sense of security at the workplace which in turn reduces labor turnover
  • Change management –involvement of employees in the change process

Your benefits

By taking this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Manage and execute HWO and snubbing interventions
  • Increase overall operational performance during snubbing interventions
  • Select the most commonly used downhole tools and explain their function
  • Work safely around a snubbing unit
  • The average time needed to complete the course is seven hours and the minimum pass mark for the exam is 70% and is valid for 2 years.
