Well Control Simulator for iPhone and iPod Touch 1.2

*** Awaiting approval by Apple *** 




Well Control Simulator Provides a graphical very useful tool for training of roughnecks, derrickmen, drillers, tool pushers, drilling engineers and students in the well control procedures.

– Interactive System: no pre-set methods;
– Ability to apply methods: Driller’s method, wait and weight, dynamic volumetric and static volumetric (lubricate and bleed);
– Capacities and Volumes;
– Hydraulics and Hydrostatics and critical pressures calculations;
– Behavior of the kick;
– Applied with subsea stack and surface stack;

Kick Model: 
The model assumes that the kick starts as a single bubble and migrates upward as a single bubble from the bottom to the surface.

– For Simulation of drilling and kick detection, use the another app “Drilling Simulator“.
– For Simulation of leak-off test, use the another app “Leak-Off Test Simulator“;
– About methods to control, use the another app “Well Control Methods“;

These are complementary tools of this simulator;

New in this update 1.2: 

  • – iOS 6 support;
  • – Retina display support to printing and email attachments;
  • – Improved performance: Graph updated  to 360 minutes;
  • – Abilitiy to use 02 mud pumps (transfering from mud pump to other);
  • – Selection of units also per parameter;
  • – Ability to import well data from other apps using iCloud;
  • – Import from app “Drilling Simulator” after the well drilled, detected kick and closed to control;
  • – Recalculate DP as necessary to surface automatically with bit on bottom when editing BHA or Well Depth;
  • – Revision of the code;
  • – Several improvements

Use the app “Drilling Simulator” to drill, detect kick, close the well and wait for stabilization of the pressures:


Import by iCloud to control:
