Allow your drilling team to master a specific HPHT well prior to spud-in

Maersk Trainings simulator-based training will increase knowledge and situational awareness and teach drilling teams how to respond correctly during unplanned situations.

Testing a specific HPHT drilling program in a safe environment will increase operational performance and safety. This course is designed to give professional drilling teams the necessary understanding of the concerns and risks of drilling a specific HPHT well prior to spud-in. Team-based training will present and create an understanding of the agreed and improved procedures before drilling the well as laid out by the drilling contractor and the oil company.

The course is a combination of practical, real life scenario based training and classroom training. The drilling team will learn how to identify and eliminate activities with the potential to increase drilling risks. Because of the simulator-based training they will get practical experience with the consequences of their decisions; errors, mistakes and successes becomes very clear. This will help build their experience-base and increase their situational awareness allowing them to more quickly respond to planned and unplanned situations when drilling the actual HPHT well.
