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.

TOTAL PREPARING FOR A HPHT EXPLORATION WELL USING A DIGITAL TWIN

Scarabeo-8-Tune

The Total Jasper team has prepared for the Jasper exploration well, by drilling the HPHT well in simulator using a digital twin prior to operations. A Digital Twin is the digital representation of your actual well. Used in preparation it enables you to pre-drill your well in the wellsSim hiDRILL simulator at the center located in Forus.

The operation is expected to take 90 days to complete. The well, located in the Total-operated production license 255B, will target a prospect named Jasper in a water depth of around 267 meters. Total will used Saipem’s Scarabeo 8 semi-submersible drilling rig for the drilling project. This is a semi-submersible drilling facility of the Moss CS50 MKII type, operated by Saipem Norge. It was built in Russia and Italy and commissioned in 2012. The facility is classified by DNV GL and registered in the Bahamas.

wellSim hiDRILL is the solution for enabling your crews to pre-drill, perform trial runs if you like, 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.
