Why are we the best Well Control simulator?
Accredited Classroom Simulator at a fraction of the cost
Simulator IADC accredited for all IADC WellSharp Well Control courses! Accessible on iPhone, iPad, and Web (all computers) so easily transportable. Traveling school? No problem!
Pay a simple monthly subscription fee at the fraction of the cost of those other simulator manufacturers.
One Student, One Simulator.
Well Control is all about practice – practicing makes perfect! With our simulator, have one simulator for every single student that they can practice with in the classroom.
Practice Simulation Exercises Before and After Class
Join hundreds of happy clients who use our simulator for students to prepare before class, practice during class, and refresh simulation exercises, in the field, throughout the 2-year well control training cycle.
Can this simulator replace the Drilling Systems or CS simulators I currently use in my Well Control training program?
Yes! The IADC has approved our simulator for use as a classroom replacement to any other well control simulator. Our simulator meets all guidelines for classroom simulator use as detailed in the IADC WellSharp Well Control guidelines.
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 a multiplayer mode where an assessor can monitor a student’s test with a Supervisor and another student as Driller.
To use our simulator meet your classroom simulator requirements, simply list our simulator in your application or update for IADC accreditation.
Intuitive, easy-to-use platform allows for unlimited practice without requiring an instructor.
Why is your simulator better than the well control 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 the 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.
What simulations does this simulation cover?
The 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, and Bullheading with kill problems.
Specifically, the Supervisor Level simulation contains the following simulations: 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 simulation contains a similar set of simulations, including kill problems during Shut-In that include BOP closing around a tool joint, Pump Leak, Choke Leak, and BOP closing problems.
Our system is very robust – let us know if there are simulations you’re interested in that we do not currently cover!
What do I need to run the simulator?
You can run our simulator on any iPhone or iPad (from the app store) or any other device with online access (using our website). That’s all!
How much does the simulator cost?
We’re designing our simulator to be substantially less expensive than our competitors, Drilling Systems and CS.
Our simulator is available through a yearly subscription model.
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, the 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.
