Simulator range


The DrillSIM:20 is a portable real-time drilling and well control simulator. The interactive simulator is a cost-effective means of delivering hands-on well control training to recognised accreditation standards including IADC and IWCF.

The DrillSIM:20 includes two consoles, a touchscreen station and a laptop which are packaged in a robust protective case that can be easily transported to deliver training anytime, anywhere.

DrillSIM Suite Manager

A DrillSIM software package license can be added to DrillSIM:20 to create a multi-station training environment. Simulations can be observed, monitored and managed from one central instructor station that provides data on the student activity and progress on each simulator.

“We found the performance of the simulators for volumentric well control, shipping operations, deepwater well control and problem presentation to be superior. The scope of simulation from both systems has met the needs of our drilling operations and the technical support from Drilling Systems has been outstanding.”
