DrillSIM:5000 Cyber

The DrillSIM:5000 Cyber provides versatile and affordable drilling and well control simulation to a global standard.

The cyber controls and 3D quad-screen graphics create a highly realistic and immersive simulated environment of a modern rig with joystick controls.

Both simple and highly complex tasks and scenarios can be recreated to verify skills and competency in real-world situations.

DrillSIM Suite Manager

A DrillSIM software package license can be added to DrillSIM:5000 Cyber 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.

The Drilling Systems' DrillSIM:5000 Cyber Chair drilling and well control simulator


The DrillSIM:5000 Cyber 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
  • Lost circulation, loss zones and leak off testing
  • Wellbore ballooning/breathing
  • Horizontal and deviated wells
  • Hole cleaning, turbulent, laminar flow
  • Drilling on junk, pipe twist-off, stuck pipe
  • Sloughing, differential sticking, key seating, pack-off
  • High pressure high temperature (HPHT) wells
  • Managed pressure drilling (MPD)
  • Drilling and tripping

… and many more.

"The ability to practice a wide range of high-risk operational scenarios in safety is one of the most valuable tools of simulation and it is events that cannot be replicated on the job where competency can truly make a difference. This is a fantastic resource, which will put Saipem personnel at the forefront of global drilling and competency standards and will help to cement our reputation for technical excellence.”
