Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Wild Well Control has become an exclusive Kick Assistance Program (KAP) provider following an announcement today at the Offshore Technology Conference by Berkley Oil & Gas and J.H. Blades.

Under KAP, Wild Well Control will provide technical response to a covered well control incident to help avoid a blowout.

KAP provides up to $50,000 for expenses incurred by Wild Well Control for personnel and equipment used to keep a pressure incident from escalating.

Berkley is an insurance provider and Blades is a managing general agency.

“To stop a well control incident and prevent loss for our clients, we are pleased to partner with Wild Well Control, the leader in well control response, safety, training, and prevention,” said Carol Randall, president of Berkley Oil & Gas.  “Our companies have a shared philosophy that investing in the safety of the oil and gas industry and preventing a pressure control problem from becoming a blowout makes the industry better.”

“We are certainly best-known for our blowout responses, but we also provide the industry with certified training for worst-case scenarios,” said Joe Dean Thompson, senior vice president for Wild Well Control. “We are pleased to be the exclusive provider for the KAP Kick Assistance Program, which has a focus on safety and prevention, and to provide Berkley Oil & Gas and J.H. Blades clients with rapid responses to their well control incidents.”

This program provides proactive involvement with the driller to apply what has been learned over the years to prevent a problem from becoming a disaster, said Blades’ Brian Krause.
