Simulator range


DrillSIM:50 is a portable real-time drilling and well control simulator. The interactive simulator is a means of delivering hands-on well control training to recognised accreditation standards.

The DrillSIM:50 includes four consoles, a touchscreen student station and a laptop instructor station which can be quickly and easily transported between classrooms and sites.

The four consoles are physical and accurate representations of drilling controls, a remote choke console, a BOP console and a manifold console.

DrillSIM Suite Manager

A DrillSIM software package license can be added to DrillSIM:50 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.

DrillSIM:50 portable drilling and well control simulator consoles


The DrillSIM:50 can be utilised to develop and run exercises including, but not limited to:

  • Oil-based mud, bubble point and gas flash out
  • Gas expansion and migration
  • Dynamic pressures during well control
  • Formation fluid type and permeability
  • Bottom hole effects – equivalent circulating density, surge and swab
  • Horizontal and deviated wells
  • Sloughing, differential sticking, key seating, pack-off
  • Rock strength and abrasiveness
  • Choke washout and plugging
  • IADC and IWCF required malfunctions
  • Drilling and tripping

“We found the performance of the simulators for volumetric 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.”
