Building off of the existing Drilling Well On Paper (DWOP) Exercise, this custom simulation makes the leap from theoretical explanation to practical exercise. Operators and contractors work together with simulated rig functions, while experiencing faults, failures, well control, power and station keeping problems.

The course promotes proactive and effective communication protocol by using the WSOG developed by both the operator and contractor, assesses how a team responds to incidents such as weather, power failure and well control, and increases awareness of various human factors that can impact safe operations.

Further information on this exercise can be found in our 2016 SPE Paper, Deepwater Well Control: Integrated Simulation for Risk Management.

 Simulator Exercises:

  • Custom Virtual Well Design
  • Power Failure Mitigation and Response
  • Loss of Stationkeeping Due to Weather
  • Tailored DP, Drilling and ECR Scenarios
