Certified National Inspector (CNI) Certification
The National Inspector Certification Program, instituted in 2000 by the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC), establishes national standards for state regulatory agencies to certify personnel responsible for inspecting oil and gas wells.
Due to inherent difference in geology, site characteristics, weather, operations, organizational structure and stage of development of each state, the certification program includes mandatory criteria applicable to all states, with an option for testing on state specific standards.
The topics include: Oilfield Terminology, Topographic Map, Seismic Activity, Site & Pit Selection, Drilling Procedures, Well Control , Cementing Procedures, Well Completion Procedures, Horizontal & Directional Drilling, Production, Underground Injection, H2S, NORM, Pollution Prevention, Well Plugging & Required Performances Objectives and Communication & Mediation.
