The students enrolled in the Petroleum Engineering (PETE) program at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette participated in the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) Well Control conference held in New Orleans. As a recognized provider of the WellSharp Well Control certification by IADC, we place significant emphasis on providing our PETE students with this vital educational opportunity. All students in our program are required to successfully complete the certification exam.

During the opening morning of the conference, our students were formally introduced to the delegation. We extend our gratitude to Mike DuBose from IADC, who ensured our students received top-notch treatment throughout the event. We would like to also express our sincere appreciation to IADC for generously sponsoring this enriching experience for our PETE students.

Undoubtedly, the realm of drilling holds extreme significance, and we are committed to instilling this importance in our students.

UPDATE: Our students were featured in the Drillbits Monthly eNewsletter, see the story here→
