wellSim™ hiDRILL™ is the real-time simulator for collaborative team training at all levels. It comprises the hiDRILL™ VR (Virtual Reality) top-side rig floor simulator dynamically coupled to the wellSim™ downhole simulator, providing a simulator with unprecedented realism and capability. The simulator responses provides real feedback all the way back on all driller’s chair instrumentation.
In its generic form, it provides a collaborative drilling team training system, featuring high-fidelity feedback from the well, responding in real time on the interaction from the drilling team. This gives the whole crew unparalleled insight and understanding of well behavior at various conditions and control input, which would otherwise require years of operational experience.
Configured with a specific well, wellSim™ hiDRILL™ provides a platform to ensure safe, effective and efficient well delivery for any planned well by acquiring skills and experience on the specific well. Multi-disciplinary teams can study the dynamic well behavior for details of the plan, and verify that plans and procedures are optimal and safe. The risk elements can be pre-run in the simulator, and the teams can train on potential malfunctions occurring during critical operations.
wellSim™ hiDRILL™ combines the eDrilling wellSim™ down hole drilling simulator with the OILTEC Solutions hiDRILL top side drilling equipment simulator.
