It's time for a better Well Control Simulator

Welcome to the well control simulator of the future! Connect any 3 iPhones, iPads, and Laptops together to make a simulator.

 

Meets IADC & IWCF guidelines for use in Well Control courses as a replacement to traditional DS & CS simulators. 

If you're looking for a new simulator, we are the #1 most powerful and least expensive option!

No hardware,

no hassle.

Take any 3 iPhones, iPads, or Laptops and convert them to an IADC/IWCF approved  well control simulator using our software. Connect any joystick for the choke.

Use your own devices, or we can provide them! Less expensive, easy to transport, and easy to use!

Unlimited simulator practice for every student

Using their own phone or tablet, every student can get unlimited simulator time during their well control class. 

Every IADC & IWCF simulation with automated guidance through an AI instructor. Every student can practice for hours on a simulator, even if the instructor is busy.

Present simulations to the class as they follow along

During class, easily project simulation exercises on a whiteboard through a simple HDMI or VGA cable. Teach using simulation as a tool. 

Give every student access to the simulator to simulate and follow along as you teach kill methods and kick detection to the class.
 

Preview simulation exercises to increase pass rates

Any purchase of a simulator for classroom use includes access to the simulator for students before and after  class. Students can practice simulation exercises on their own iPhones, iPads, or computers.

 

Students get unlimited simulator practice before and after class to increase pass rates on the WellSharp exam.

Can this simulator replace the Drilling Systems or CS simulators I currently use in my well control training program?

Our simulator meets all guidelines for classroom simulator use as detailed in the IADC WellSharp Well Control guidelines. It has been fully approved by the IADC.

For classroom practice, every student can use our simulator to engage in classroom simulation exercises. For assessment, our simulators can be used with multiple devices in multiplayer mode where an assessor can monitor a student’s test with a Supervisor and another student as Driller.

To use our simulator to meet your classroom simulator requirements, simply list our simulator in your application or update for IADC accreditation.

Why is your simulator better than other simulators I've used in the past?

Unlike other simulator companies that rely on 1980s era technology, our simulator was built in 2018 – for the mobile age! Our simulator is truly a simulator for the modern era.

First, you can use our simulator on any device – iPad, iPhone, or any computer connected to the internet. As a result, you no longer have to rely on large, bulky, physical hardware that is difficult and expensive to transport. Our simulators are much more convenient to transport and use!

Second, our simulators have substantially less technical support required than any existing hardware simulators! Existing simulators are built on 1980s era technology and proprietary hardware that is challenging to use and difficult to fix when it goes wrong. We’re using devices that everyone is familiar with – if our simulator doesn’t work, just go to the Apple Store!

Third, our simulator lets students practice without having an instructor present! We have a Virtual Instructor build into our software system who walks students through simulation exercises with step-by-step hints and guidance. In the classroom, students get to see a fantastic instructor. But, when the instructor doesn’t have time or isn’t around, students can practice until perfect with our virtual instructor.

Lastly, our simulation lets you practice anywhere, anytime. Your students can do simulation exercises at home before class, in the classroom, and on the rig in between the 2-year well control cycle. Stop complaining about not having enough simulator time for each student! Now, everyone can have unlimited simulator time.

As a well control instructor, what control do I have over student simulation exercises?

As a well control instructor, you can set up a simulation with up to 10 pre-set configurations that meet IADC regulations. You can also create a custom well with custom well parameters, including piping sizes, kill problems, timing of the kick, and whether or not a float valve is in the well.

In addition, as a well control instructor, you can view a student activity log through every stage of the kill operation, including every single time the choke was manipulated and for how long. Detailed graphs show how pressures behave at each stage of the kill operation; these can be saved as PDF files for export.

How is the simulator priced?

Unlike other, competitor simulators, our simulator has zero upfront costs. We have no hardware!

Instead, we charge an annual fee to license the simulator. This annual fee includes access to the software and unlimited technical support. This gives the training provider the ability to use the simulator for practice, refresher, assessment, and any other classroom use. 

Cost per training provider depends on how many students are being trained annually and ranges upwards from $3,000/year.
