Maersk Training, with Oiltec Solutions, and eDrilling, announced that training on the advanced drilling and engineering simulator will be available, in Maersk Training’s new training facility in Houston, TX when the center opens in November 2015.
“Saving cost, improving safety, and increasing efficiency and performance of drilling operations have always been our targets, and these factors are only going to grow in importance. Drilling the well, testing new technology, and verifying procedures, in simulators, are assisting operators to do exactly that,” Jacob Petz, managing director, Maersk Training in Houston said.
“More than 2000 drilling and well professionals have been trained on wellSim hiDRILL by Maersk Training in Stavanger, Norway, on more than 100 well specific training scenarios. It will be great for US operators now to have the opportunity to do the same,” Tor Olav Schibevaag, CEO eDrilling said.
