Drilling Contractors

Drilling Systems understands that the people who crew, manage and maintain your rigs are central to your operations as a drilling contractor, which is why we are continuously developing advanced drilling simulator technology to revolutionise how training is delivered to your teams and enhance employee productivity.

Accreditation standards

We are committed to offering a wide range of drilling simulators that ensure your teams are trained to the highest industry standards. Our DrillSIM simulators meet and exceed oil and gas drilling and well control training and accreditation standards such as IADC Driller and Supervisor and IWCF levels 3 and 4. We also provide models that meet OPITO stage 3 crane operator reassessments.

Competency assessment

Our comprehensive range of simulators support your competency assessment programmes for drilling and equipment operations, well control and crane training. Personnel are given the opportunity to rehearse challenging or infrequent operations which increases their confidence and provides the ability to make the correct decision under pressure.


Drilling simulators allow personnel involved in active well operations to have continuous training through regular hands-on simulation exercises. Whether you are looking to ensure crew competency during rig-reactivations or give your teams the opportunity to rehearse challenging or infrequent operations in a safe environment, we work closely with you to provide a solution that meets your specific objectives.

"Together with Drilling Systems we developed a three phased approach to preparing our drilling and lifting teams.

"The Stella Don project helped us test and verify our crews' skills levels in a safe, fast and highly effective way and by rolling out the approach to our other Drillships we can give our clients assurance that we are operating at the highest levels of safety and competency."
