Cudd Well Control

Cudd Well Control has been a leader in well firefighting for more than a quarter of a century. From well control projects in the Americas to blowouts in remote areas across the globe, Cudd has long demonstrated their capabilities under pressure.

As one of the world’s top well firefighters, Cudd Well Control was called upon by the U.S. government to respond to oil well fires - 788 separate well fires set in Kuwait’s oil fields by the retreating Iraqi army - after Operation Desert Storm.  Experts predicted that putting out the Kuwaiti oil field fires would take four to five years. As a result of Cudd’s state-of-the-art firefighting techniques and technology, the fires were extinguished within just nine months, and it was widely reported that the resulting environmental disaster, already unprecedented in scope, would have been much, much worse without Cudd’s applied expertise.

Cudd Well Control maintains an impressive store of firefighting equipment in their Texas, Oklahoma and Wyoming warehouse facilities ready to be transported by air to any location on short notice.
