Gaming Technology Inspires Latest Generation of On The Rig (OTR) Drilling Simulator

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/3/2019, Location: Europe

Immersive and easy-to-use gaming technology has been used to develop the latest generation of software for the portable OTR simulator.

A NEW VERSION OF ON THE RIG (OTR) SOFTWARE HAS BEEN RELEASED.

OTR has all the capabilities of a full-size simulator but is compact enough to be transported to remote locations to train drilling crews in all elements of its operations, from well control to drilling and crane and lifting.

The new software incorporates even more realistic graphics and an enhanced instructor-free learning management system (LMS), making it easier and more engaging to follow learning programmes. It was developed in conjunction with Neutron VR, which like Drilling Systems is part of the 3T Energy Group. Neutron’s heritage is rooted firmly in the gaming industry as both of its founders previously working for games developer, Eutechnyx, with extensive experience in creating striking visuals and immersive experiences.

As well as an updated touch control screen system and highly immersive on-screen graphics, the OTR’s new software update includes shortened learning exercises with instant performance feed-back to enhance learning.

The software also uses a cloud hosted system, allowing user data to be uploaded remotely and synchronised across different units so someone could start an exercise on one OTR and finish the same programme on another as well as providing a dashboard on user performance.

"The oil and gas sector can benefit enormously from the gaming industry’s vast expertise in areas such as the creation of digital twins or immersive learning environments and our new OTR software is a great example of this." Clive Battisby, Director of Simulator Operations, 3T Energy Group

Drilling Systems’ OTR simulator system is already being used successfully in the field to prepare drilling crews for operations. Earlier this year, the OTR was used on the Ocean Great White rig to rehearse the specific conditions faced at Blackrock, off Shetland. The OTR was programmed with specific training scenarios, allowing the crew to practice anticipated scenarios in a safe environment beforehand so they knew exactly how to react when faced with similar situations on board. Feedback following the campaign showed the simulator to be ‘an asset to the project’s success’ helping to maximise uptime and develop crew skills and confidence.
