Integrated Drilling Simulator (IDS)

Integrated Drilling Simulator (IDS)

The Integrated Drilling Simulator (IDS) is the heart of both the eDrilling System and the eControl System. IDS is a synthesis of multiple transient and steady state coupled models for the drilling sub-processes. It simulates interactions between the various sub-processes. At present the IDS consists of a dynamic flow and temperature model, a torque and drag model, a rate of penetration (ROP) model, a wellbore stability model, and a pore pressure model.

The applications of the IDS are:

  • During design to  test the Drilling Plan as well as develop scenarios to be expected
  • Training of personnel
  • During operations for process control. IDS is linked to the drilling process in real time and assist in diagnosis, drilling optimization and forward looking
  • During post analysis to assist in knowledge building and experience transfer
