This Well Control Simulator is an important tool for Well Control training in Oil & Gas to practice Driller's Method, Wait and Weight Method, Volumetric Methods, etc

This is a project for Drilling and Well Control optimized for newer iPhones and iPads (iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, iPad Pro 10.5-inch, 11-inch and 12.9-inch).

This is a basic drilling simulator that simulates drilling operations based in panels for kick detection, shut-in the well, stabilization of pressures and the choke operations during the well control operations using a hydraulic choke panel simulator.

Difference between our drilling simulators apps:

DRILLING SIMULATOR 1 - independent versions for iPhone and iPad (drilling, kick detection, shut-in, pressures stabilization, 1 single bubble, NO CONTROL)

DRILLING SIMULATOR 2 - designed for both iPhone and iPad (drilling, kick detection, shut-in, pressures stabilization, 1 single bubble, DIRECTIONAL/HORIZONTAL WELL, WELL CONTROL ON CHOKE PANEL WITH 1 REMOTE CHOKE)

DRILLING SIMULATOR 3 (drilling, kick detection, shut-in, pressures stabilization, MULTIPLE KICKS (3 SINGLE BUBBLES), DIRECTIONAL/HORIZONTAL WELL, WELL CONTROL ON CHOKE PANEL WITH 2 REMOTE CHOKES, STANDPIPE MANIFOLD, CHOKE MANIFOLD, FLOAT VALVE, GESTURE SWAIPE UP/DOWN TO MOVE DRILLSTRING, FAILURES SCHEDULE WITH RANDOM OPTION (Mud Pumps 1 and 2 “power end failure” or “fluid end failure”, Chokes 1 and 2 “plugged” or “washout”, One Drill Bit Nozzle “plugged” or “lost” and Drill String “washout” or “leaded”) AND SET KICK WITHOUT DRILLING NEED.

Additional features:
1. Driller Interface based on Pressure Gauge, Weight Indicator, Rotary Torque gauge and Geolograph.
2. Choke Interface based on Hydraulic Choke Panel.
3. Graph in full screen (with background color in black or white) for analysis.

iPad version:
1. Pre-recorded data view
2. Screen layout optimized for 12.9-inch iPad Pro (High Resolution)
3. Three codes (admin, instructor, student) to view the gas into the borehole, the pressure at bottom, at shoe and at bop and to enable / disable the Lag Time (by adjusting the choke to change the kill pressure and drill pipe pressure, etc).
4. Use the arrow keys on keyboard for iPad Pro to operate the choke.

iPhone version:
1. Pre-recorded data available in the well configuration views.
2. Screen layout optimized for iPhone Plus, iPhone X and iPad Pro (High Resolution)
3. All features available without codes.

Other features also available:
