Unique functionality

Our full sized hiDRILL simulator delivers unique functionality for drilling training. Offering fully equipped cyber chairs, emulated control systems and a full topside and downhole solution, hiDRILL can be delivered with different high-quality visual systems, based upon your requirements. It is an innovative and realistic dynamic drilling simulator. With full visualization in real time, it reacts to the crews input as it is offshore. Thanks to its flexible and modular structure, you can use the generic topside model alone, add a generic downhole model, or make a specific downhole and topside models. These three possibilities allow you to purchase the exact simulator you need, according to your challenges. The hiDRILL simulator with downhole corresponds to hiDRILL wellSIM.

Drilling cost saving

By purchasing a hiDRILL simulator, you can emulate your rig facilities and your specific wells upon request. This customization enables you to train your crews and support teams in a safe environment prior going on the rig. They can test both your procedures and the third party systems, and familiarize themselves with your installations and control systems. They can also drill their own well in the simulator. It reduces significantly the number of “On-the-Job Training” days required, decreases the reliance on “On-the-Rig Mentors” and improves substantially operational safety and efficiency. Your people will be more confident and experienced. They will be able to drill safer, quicker and to save drilling time and rig rental, which creates an immediate sizable added value for you.

Let the team solve the challenges in the simulator:

  • Driller
  • Assistant Driller
  • Toolpusher
  • Company man
  • Drilling Supervisor
  • Subcontractors
  • Onshore support
  • Center/team

We deliver effective and realistic dynamic drilling simulator solutions that enables the leading E&P companies, operators and service companies to improve safety, increase efficiency and save costs of drilling and well operations.

Drilling Generic SEMI


Oiltec Solutions has for decades delivered drilling simulators to the leading IOCs, NOCs and drilling contractors around the globe. Without the downhole model only a few downhole parameters are simulated. A simple model of the drill string and annulus is included, to allow for standpipe pressure generation as well as features such as flow returns and volumes. Without the downhole functionality, the primary objective of the hiDRILL Simulator is to train the operators in working with the drilling control system, handling the machinery and effective procedures of operation. This has unique value to rig owners and drilling contractors for commissioning and equipment training for new-builds.

A broad variety of different hardware configurations are available, from single cyber chair set-up to the full dome solution.

Key drilling simulator benefits:

  • Generic topside model with simple downhole parameters
  • Train in a safe environment: no risk to personnel, assets or the environment
  • Recreate operational scenarios
  • Reduce the learning curve
  • Increase confidence and experience of the driller and assistant driller
  • Reduce the reliance of “On-the-Rig Mentors” and “On-the-Job Training” (OJT)
  • Rig crew training and team problem solving: Analyse gaps in crew knowledge
  • Provide an independent competency assessment solution
  • Recreate rig specific models (option)
