track record for successfully confronting blowouts and

problem wells onshore, offshore and underground.

“We can handle anything

that an uncertain world

can throw at the

world of oil & gas.”

We also offer contingency planning and well control engineering

services to help companies improve by identifying procedures and

building upon strengths. Our emphasis is to research, develop, and

create guidelines and standards that are in place for you to respond

when and if the situation becomes a reality.

While well fires grab the headlines, the reality of worldwide

well control services is that a broad range of skills are

needed under pressure conditions. Also, advanced technology,

equipment and tools are essential.

At Cudd Well Control, people, experience and equipment

are the three essentials that are always at the forefront

of our operations in order to be ready to respond with

excellence when you call.
