Drilling Systems, a globally renowned provider of cutting-edge drilling simulation technology, and a subsidiary of the 3t Energy Group, a leader in training, technology, and simulation solutions, has introduced an advanced DrillSIM Downhole model designed to facilitate authentic training for geothermal applications.
This innovative model has been successfully integrated for the first time at the Drilling Simulator Celle (DSC), a research facility under Clausthal University of Technology (TUC) located in Germany. Building upon the accomplishments of the DrillSIM simulator in actual operations, this next-generation downhole model is set to elevate the research and development capabilities of both new and existing DrillSIM simulators. It will empower trainees to practice intricate procedures like directional drilling, monitoring pressure changes (kick tracking), and addressing stuck pipe scenarios within an exceptionally lifelike and intricately detailed virtual environment. The enhanced features of this model encompass heightened real-world data integration, an advanced thermal and dynamic design, simulation of drill string vibrations, representation of complex 3D well paths, and a heightened emphasis on replicating the transportation of cuttings typically encountered in deep drilling operations.
