The training simulator will improve the ability to identify potential serious problems early and learn to rectify the operations accordingly. Especially, this will contribute to the improvement of efficiency, quality and Health, Environment and Safety (HES).
The Drilling and Well Construction Department is responsible for developing the downhole simulator which will be based on the SINTEF dynamic flow model. This model is flexible and will handle all operations relevant for simulator training:
- Managed Pressure Drilling
- Drilling operations
- Stripping operations
- Multi fluid operations
- Well control – handling of kick and loss
