Technology news for 2019: BINC 3D, it’s even better than the real thing!

Binc 3D Drill-floor

We are now starting to implement our latest BINC™ 3D visual models improvement in a new release for 2019. Our technical team has worked hard during this last year to get the next version of BINC™ 3D models ready for our customers. After months of upgrading models and testing software performance, our technical team is ready to do the launch. We just call it realism in every detail!

What do our latest BINC™ 3D visual engine bring to you as our customer:

  • Extremely fast loading of 3D scenes using the binary BINC file format
  • All rendering data contained on Graphics Card just one simple draw call from CPU draws the whole scene
  • Using newest OpenGL v4.6
  • Full 64 bit support makes it easy to use all Graphics Card memory (currently 12GB on Geforce)
  • Full support for 4K textures and larger (flexible extension)
  • No limits on number of textures in the scene
  • Immersive ready

In sum, BINC™ 3D will give you as a customer an increased realism in every detail, improving the value of your training of your personnel. The GAP between simulation and real will be closer than ever before.

For all our Annual Maintenance Contract (AMC) customers, we will contact you to schedule our new hiDRILL™ and hiCRANE™ software releases for Q1, 2019. Be ready to experience a new BINC™ 3D reality in our hiDRILL™ and hiCRANE™ simulators that is “even better than the real thing!”

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

 

ITPE_MG_9834

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.

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

hiDRILL-Xperience-03
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

IMG_0693

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.

Event: Stavanger Training Center Open day for Equinor

hiDrill simulator

A successful simulation Open-day in our Training Center hosted by our partners Maersk Training, where we had the pleasure to welcome representatives from several licenses from Equinor. Equinor is an energy company with more than 20.000 employees developing oil, gas, wind and solar energy in more than 30 countries. Equinor plans to drill as many as 3,000 exploration or development wells off the coast of Norway in the hope of finding new oil and gas fields and extend the lifetimes of existing ones. This is around the same number as the company has drilled in the near 50 years since it was founded in 1972. Equinor has a clear ambition to make use of the best technology available, in order to drive a consistent long term safe and efficient operational performance and value creation. eDrilling and Oiltec are proud suppliers of the hiDRILL wellSim simulator technology.

Equinor has been using our hiDRILL wellSim simulator for its well specific training (Drill your well in the Simulator) since 2012. Using a Digital Twin of the well that are going to be drilled, enables the crew to train on realistic challenges that they may experience offshore and through this training be much more prepared to handle the challenges. With more than 3.500+ people trained since 2012, our hiDRILL wellSim Simulators has been put well at use.

After the presentation of simulation training with human factors and the demonstration of the simulator’s functionalities, many attendees had a chance to act as a driller or an assistant driller during tripping out in a virtual environment drilling a Digital-twin well. Others enjoyed to discuss the presented technologies and the training value it delivers to the licenses.

Oiltec Expands in the Middle East with hiDRILL Xperience™

Lebanon 2

Oiltec has just completed another delivery of the hiDRILL Xperience Simulator in the Middle East. The hiDRILL Xperience simulator will be a key part of the University’s strategy towards the local oil and gas sector.

For Lars Namork, Oiltec Director of Sales, it has been a pleasure to work with the team of Phoenicia University to develop a top-of-the-range facility at its campus in southern Lebanon. Oiltec is honored to have been selected by Phoenicia University to provide software solutions for drilling simulations and operations.

Highly qualified instructors will run the facility. Beyond fundamental well control, the university can now bring students into higher levels of petroleum engineering through the Crew Resource Management training program, among others. The flexibility of the system, in combination with the very high competence of the staff, will propel Phoenicia University to be the number one facility provider in the region.

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 drilling and well operations for decades to come.
