Well Control Specialist

Luis Sanchez is a bilingual Well Control Specialist and IWCF & IADC accredited instructor with a background in Petroleum Engineering based at the centre. He joined RelyOn Nutec Mexico in 2021 to deliver high quality instruction to IWCF and IADC curriculum standards and provide coaching and competency assessment of drilling, completions workover and well intervention crews both in the classroom and at rig site.

The delegates interested in obtaining or renewing their well control certificates can be assured that they will find professional training delivered to the highest standards at our training facilities in Mexico. The extensive experience of our instructors worldwide makes us an excellent choice to train your personnel in well control operations.

Our training is always engaging and interactive. We create an environment in which delegates feel encouraged to ask questions. They learn from us but also from each other as those more experienced individuals will often complement the training by sharing their professional experiences. This type of interaction, facilitated by supportive instructors, strengthens the quality of our courses and allows the topics learned to be projected into real scenarios faced by the delegates on the drilling platform.” – Luis Sanchez, Well Control Instructor.
