What well control simulations does this well control simulator cover?

The guided simulator covers all IADC required simulations for the Driller and Supervisor Level Drilling, Workover/Completions, and Well Servicing Well Control courses. This includes Driller’s Method, Wait and Weight Method, Bullheading. and Kick Detection with kill problems.

Specifically, the Supervisor Level simulator contains the following simulations for both Driller's Method and Wait & Weight Method: Line Up BOP panel, Line Up Choke Panel, Line Up Standpipe Manifold, Line Up Choke Manifold, Line Up Trip Tank, Check/Set BOP Pressures, Perform Kill Sheet Calculations, Line up Pits, Pumps, and Valves, Adjust Pit Levels, Communicate Kill Plan, Carry Out Kill (Potential Complications = Nozzle Plugging, Nozzle Washout, Choke Plugging, and Choke Washout).

The Driller Level drilling simulator contains a similar set of simulations, focused on lining up and starting normal drilling operations, detecting a kick warning a sign, detecting a kick indicator, and handling kill problems during Shut-In that include BOP closing around a tool joint, Pump Leak, Choke Leak, and BOP closing problems.

The Bullheading workover simulator includes preparing a kill sheet, lining up the christmas tree, pumping in the annulus, and killing the well. 

Our system is very robust – let us know if there are simulations you’re interested in that we do not currently cover!

What new well control simulations and features are you working on? 

We’re brand new to well control simulation, and we have a very exciting vision. We’re working on a joystick that can be hooked up to be a choke. We’re working on Siri integration for the Supervisor to say “Siri, give me 10 strokes”. And we’re building a ton of new simulations – Wireline, Coiled Tubing, Snubbing, and Managed Pressure Drilling all coming soon!

Can this simulator replace the legacy 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, and IWCF approval is pending.

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.

Do you have any happy clients or testimonials about your simulator?

We do! Chevron was our development partner, and they have launched our drilling simulator globally across the entire workforce. We have several other companies using our simulator in the field. Email us an for more detailed testimonials and information about our clients. 

Can you do custom work for my specific rig, company, or field?

Yes, absolutely! Our well control simulator system is cloud-based with modern technologies on mobile devices. We can do custom work for your panels, your rig, your procedures, or your wells quickly and inexpensively.
