"Techniques include:[1]

Dousing with copious amounts of water
Raising the plume- Inserting one metal casing 30 to 40 feet high over the well head (thus raising the flame above the ground). Liquid nitrogen or water is then forced in at the bottom to reduce the oxygen supply and put out the fire.
Drill relief wells into the producing zone to redirect some of the oil and make the fire smaller. (However, most relief wells are used to pump heavy mud and cement deep into the wild well.)
Using a gas turbine to blast a fine mist at the fire. Water is injected to the compressor section of the turbine in large quantities. This does not harm the turbine. This technique is also used for cleaning turbines.
Using dynamite to 'blow out' the fire by blasting fuel and oxygen from the flame and consuming oxygen in the combustion. This was one of the earliest effective methods and is still widely used. The first use was by Myron Kinley's father in California in 1913 [2]
Dry Chemical (mainly Purple K) can be used on small well fires such as those in refineries."

Perhaps you should expand your scope of knowledge to something other than the movies.
