I N T R O D U C T I O N 

The 3rd edition of our Oil & Gas Training and Simulation Forum has become the must-attend event in the region for everyone involved with Simulators in the O&G Industry. The Forum in the beautiful city of Aberdeen is the only business conference in Europe for the O&G industry with the focus on simulators.

 

 It will bring together those who are involved with simulators, training personnel, training managers, operation support managers and anyone with an interest in simulators or those who develop or use simulation tools on the Oil and Gas industry. This event will give an excellent opportunity for networking, benchmarking and business development with industry peers, contractors, vendors, suppliers and regulators.

 

 The latest technologies, projects, codes, 3D visualization and simulation, strategies and focus points for the present and future will be presented and demonstrated by an excellent speaker line-up. We are looking forward to meeting you in Aberdeen!

Training & Simulation Bringing MPD Technology To Life

The technological advancements in MPD enable us to drill and explore in more complex ways than ever before. Nonetheless, our exposure to higher risks remain. There is no denying the potential for catastrophic outcomes if we lose control or barriers fail. Thus a lot of effort goes into ensuring all the key players are trained to a high standard and on the same page when it comes to well control with MPD installed. Training is essential, but simulation in training can be invaluable when utilised to its full potential. This session aims to showcase progress in MPD procedures, guidelines and equipment specific to well control, and how it has allowed both contractors and operators to achieve their goals with confidence.
16.30-17.00 Panel Discussion

Building the bridge to the next generation. Simulation, essential but not exclusive for Training – best practices and different applications.
