Well Control applied to oil well drilling and workover operations
Author: Well Control
We are a team of specialists in petroleum engineering with over 24 years of expertise in oil wells drilling and workover operations. We have in our portfolio Well Control Simulators for training and Monitoring Systems for the oil industry.
Our mission is to bring petroleum specialists and students innovative tools which will provide safety and efficiency to their work.
This app provides the casing shoe depths calculations based on formation pore pressure gradient and fracture pressure gradient using both concepts “bottom-up” and “top-down” and also analysis of the kick effects on the casing setting.
This app was developed based in existent spreadsheets. There is no comparison with any other software.
Our goal was to create an application with the help of experts to share with drilling engineers, technicians, drillers, students and teachers of drilling engineering.
There is no intention to replace the professional softwares.
You can contribute with suggestions for improvements, correcting the translation to english, reporting bugs and spreading it to your friends.
New in 2.0 version:
– Compatibility with newer iPhones and iPads
– Compatibility with newer iOS versions and iPadOS
This is a basic drilling simulator that simulates drilling operations based in panels for drilling, kick detection, shut-in the well, stabilization of pressures and the choke operations during the well control operations using a hydraulic choke panel simulator.
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
1 – until 03 single kick bubbles on the borehole simultaneously
2 – standpipe manifold and choke manifold with 02 chokes and straight through
3 – Complications: failures schedule with Random option:
– Mud Pumps 1 and 2 “power end failure” or “fluid end failure”,
– Chokes 1 and 2 “plugged” or “washed”,
– One Drill Bit Nozzle “plugged” or “washed”
Drilling Simulator 3 LITE (This App)
all of drilling simulator 3 for 20 minutes of simulation:
This is a limited version of the “Drilling Simulator 3” free for 20 minutes. This time is sufficient in this simulator for drilling until kick detection, shut-in the well, stabilization of pressures and to start the well circulation using a hydraulic choke panel to control.
We develop this new app for iPhone and iPad by suggestions of users and well control schools !
This is a basic well control simulator for training in Oil & Gas that simulates the control applying the Volumetric Method (and Lubricate and Bleed Method) after the kick detection during stripping out the drillstring on the drilling operations in the oil well.
This is a new project also based on app “Kick Game 2” available in our portfolio like the Driller’s Method Simulator and Wait and Weight Method Simulator. Like these apps only surface parameters are displayed.
