Why Choose this Training Course?

A well head is a component at the surface of an oil or gas well that provides the structural and pressure-containing interface for the drilling and production equipment.

The primary purpose of a wellhead is to provide the suspension point and pressure seals for the casing strings that run from the bottom of the hole sections to the surface pressure control equipment.

The Well Heads and Gate Valves are critical parts of any Oil & Gas Well. They control the pressures in the Casings and Production Tubing and are significant barriers in case of leaks.
