Wild Well Control increased its presence in the Asia-Pacific region this month.
Steve Nas, regional manager of Well Control Engineering – Asia-Pacific region, brings nearly 35 years of experience with a focus on underbalanced and managed pressure drilling (MPD) solutions as well as experience in designing project-specific well control modeling software programs.
With more than 15 years of professional experience in Southeast Asia, Nas has a wealth of regionally-based deepwater well control knowledge, having overseen the drilling of more than 200 MPD wells. In addition, his key role in the development of software for dynamic and steady-state systems offers Wild Well clients in the region optimal well control and dynamic flow modeling abilities.
Wild Well also increases its coverage of Asia-Pacific with the addition of Chris Murphy, senior director of operations – Asia-Pacific Region, to Kuala Lumpur. Murphy brings with him knowledge from both operator and service company perspectives.
In 2014, Wild Well topped off a comprehensive emergency response system for the Southeast Asia region with the strategic placement of a subsea capping stack system in Singapore. Complete with debris removal shears, hardware kits for the subsea application of dispersant and inhibition fluids at a wellhead, along with ancillary equipment, the stack system is maintained in a state of deployable readiness for a rapid response to deepwater well control incidents throughout Southeast Asia.
