China’s leading centre for well control training, CNOOC Well Control Centre (CWCC), is investing £1.1 million in state-of-the-art simulator technology to support the oil and gas industry across the region.

CWCC has developed new classrooms and installed several MultiSIMs, DrillSIM:5s and DrillSIM:Educators at its training centre in Tianjin, delivered by 3t-China and advanced simulator developer, Drilling Systems. The new facilities complement CWCC’s existing centre, which currently teaches more than 2,400 students annually, and will be used to train and assess oil and gas personnel in all elements of well control and drilling to internationally-approved IADC and IWCF standards.

3t-China and Drilling Systems, both part of 3t Energy Group, won the contract with CWCC last year and have been working closely with the company to design and develop the simulator technology, which was installed this week. The MultiSIM system allows training in multiple well intervention operations including coiled tubing, wireline and newly developed software for snubbing operations, while the DrillSIM:5 and DrillSIM:Educator systems are specifically designed as a cutting-edge teaching tool for multiple person class sizes.
