Oiltec’s hiCRANE Xperience simulators provides your port with the best simulator solution improving the safety, efficiency and proficiency of your port operations.


MOL is preparing for upcoming exploration, by drilling well 3/7-11 S Otta/Vinstra (in PL 539) in our hiDRILL wellSim using digital twin prior to operations.

Rowan Viking is contracted for the well, located in the southern part of the North Sea, close to the Harald Vest field on the Danish side, and 45 km east of the Valhall- and Ekofisk fields.  MOL plan to drill the main bore for Vinstra followed by a sidetrack to shallower formation Otta. Exploration wells are located in the southern part of the North Sea at a water depth of 66 meters. MOL owns 80% of the field, and Lundin 20%.  Drilling is planned to start April 1st.

hiDrill simulator

wellSim hiDRILL is the planning and training solution for enabling your crews to pre-drill, perform test runs of your upcoming well in the simulator. It provides safe, effective, and efficient well delivery for any planned well by giving crew skills and experience on the specific well. Adding Human Factor training and you will have a 360 training program for your crews.

wellSim hiDRILL™ simulators are on the forefront of the O&G industry digitization, enabling our clients to improve drilling safety, efficiency and proficiency in their operations using a digital twin of their actual well.

Drilling your Digital-twin well in our Dynamic hiDRILL™ simulator



We at Oiltec Solutions are very proud our our hiDRILL™ drilling simulator product portfolio. The feedback we get from our clients and users are excellent, especially related to its realism and ability to accurately build a Digital-twin of the well to be drilled. Feedback from drilling campaigns achieving zero incidents, or injures, as well as drastically reducing NPT, flat-time, and down-time during their operations. The Instructor has the ability to build realistic and accurate scenarios for the students, enabling him, or her to deliver a great learning experience. Learning to handle potential problems before the operation, as well as testing out different options give the Leaders and crews confidence before starting the operations. We look forward to share our technology and new software updates for our existing and news clients during 2019.

Our hiDRILL™ simulator products and services are enabling your teams to improve safety, efficiency and proficiency of your drilling and well operations.


Oiltec welcomes 2019


We look forward to share exciting things with our customers, partners and friends in this new year 2019. We will launch new upgraded simulator products- and services for both the oil and gas, as well as the port/logistic sector.

Event: Visiting delegations to learn about drilling your well in our Digital-twin

Oiltec Solutions is very pleased these last weeks to host several visiting delegations, that wanted to learn more related to how they can improve their drilling operations, by using our Dynamic drilling simulator and drill your well using a Digital-twin. A digital twin is a complete 360-degree digital replica of a physical well that is loaded into the drilling simulator. With an increased focus on digitization, more and more people in our industry open their eyes for the efficiency and safety values that drilling simulation brings to the O&G industry. With the ability to drill the exact well that you are going to drill offshore or onshore in the simulator, the leaders and crews will be ready for flawless execution during the drilling operations.

Our hiDRILL™ simulator products and services are at the forefront of the O&G industry digitization, enabling our clients to improve safety, efficiency and proficiency within their offshore drilling and well operations. 

Event: Wintershall and Oiltec Solutions hosted a Gazprom management delegation to learn about the Maria Simulation training


Oiltec Solutions was very pleased last week when we together with Wintershall Norway hosted a visit from Gazprom management. The background for the Maria presentation was to give the Gazprom management a in-depth insight in how the training projects was executed together with our partners Maersk Training, eDrilling, K&M and CAVU International. Using our Dynamic hiDRILL wellSim simulator, the Maria crews from Odfjell and Halliburton drilled using a Digital-Twin well, as well as the CAVU coaches focused on Leadership and crews performance.

In short the key achievements for Maria were:

  • Zero incidents and injuries during the 270 days drilling campaign
  • The team finished way ahead of the drill plan, resulting in considerable savings
  • The rig drastically reduced its NPT, flat-time and down-time during operation

After the presentation the Gazprom visitors were invited to test the Dynamic Drilling simulator first hand, drilling segments of the Maria well in the Digital-Twin. A lot of interesting discussions took place during the event and we welcome the Gazprom management to revisit upon occasion.
