Emergency Response Equipment & Locations

Wild Well maintains the largest inventory of well control, firefighting, and special services equipment in the industry



Wild Well maintains the largest inventory of well control, firefighting, and special services equipment in the industry. Wild Well houses a majority of the specialized well control equipment at its Houston Headquarters where in only a matter of hours the equipment can be mobilized to any part of the world. In addition, Wild Well stores and maintains specialized well control equipment at other locations in the US and internationally.

Because Wild Well designs, engineers, and fabricates a majority of the specialized well control equipment itself, the history of all of the equipment movements and maintenance have been tracked through an electronic inventory system; ensuring that it is ready at all times for shipment to remote areas in response to a well control emergency.

Inventoried items include 2,500 to 6,000 GPM Wild Well fire pumps (several rated for Arctic use), hydraulic and conventional Athey Wagons and accessories, fully stocked hose and monitor containers, hot tap tools, gate valve drilling units, and cryogenic freeze packages.
