Wild Well Control

Company Overview

Our History and Vision

Since 1975, Wild Well has provided best-in-class well control and emergency response and is the primary responder to more than 80 percent of all well blowouts globally — no one responds more frequently.

Founded by Joe R. Bowden, Sr. in 1975, Wild Well became the first competition for what, at that time, had been a monopoly in well control services. Joe Bowden approached each well control event from an engineering perspective, attempting to preserve the integrity of the wellbore and the operator’s investment. Wild Well continues to use this approach today. Today, Wild Well provides firefighting, well control, engineering and training services to the oil and gas industry worldwide.

With over 350 employees in 18 locations worldwide, Wild Well’s vision is to provide a range of well control services to help oil and gas operators respond to emergencies and operational challenges, and provide comprehensive prevention and preparedness planning to avoid future emergencies.

Clients include major, independent, multi-national and state-owned oil and gas companies who operate wells onshore, in inland waters, offshore and in deepwater locations. Wild Well is also the preferred provider for insurance companies and government agencies.
