1. Introduction

ESIM-DEE1 drilling emergency exercise simulation training system is a set of software for drilling practitioners to improve their capability of emergency management and it can be used for training and assessment of emergency exercise.This system,taking the emergency handling of typical incidents in drilling operation as the core and based on the emergency plan for drilling emergencies,simulates the process of drilling emergency exercise,receives the emergency handling operation of the trainee,and judges the personnel’s handling operation according to the emergency plan.Through the system,the trainees can correctly prejudge the on-site situation,participate in the training of emergency handling and emergency escape in the face of drilling incidents,thereby improving the personnel’s emergency response capability.

(1)The system is developed from the mainstream 3D graphics engine.It can simulate the drill scenario,equipment and facilities,personnel situation,environmental conditions,the process of the incident occurrence and development through 3D simulation technology and 3D interaction technique,to realize the simulation and 3D interaction of the personnel emergency handling process.

(2)The system can be used to carry out the simulation of emergency exercise for typical incidents of drilling and conduct the single-person exercise and multi-person joint exercise for trainees.It can automatically evaluate personnel’s emergency handling,emergency handling,professional skills,individual protection and emergency knowledge of the participating trainees.

(3)The system supports the plan editing function so that the user can edit the plan Drilling emergency exercise simulation training system according to the plan format to adapt to the change of the on-site emergency requirements.The edited plan can be directly applied to the drill operation to develop a new evaluation standard

(4)The system has the function of drill configuration,which can customize the emergency drill process.Based on 3D visualization,it can realize the configuration of emergency exercise related scenes,environmental parameters,events,drill process,functional tasks,etc.,to meet individualized and customized requirement of emergency handling.

(5)The exercise process is controlled and managed by the instructor in a unified manner.Instructors can use the instructor-side software to manage the information of trainees,arrange the drill subjects and the drill process and make the emergency plan.Instructors send arranged exercise plan to the student side,and the trainees can exercise according to the plan.

(6)The system supports demonstration mode,practice mode and assessment mode,which can be applied to the whole process from teaching,learning,to training assessment.


The drilling emergency exercise simulation training system is divided into three parts: the server side, the instructor side, and the student side. The modules are as follows:


Figure 1 Drilling emergency exercise simulation training system function module


3.1Student Side

It is usedfor exercise activities of trainees with single and multi-person exercise modes. Trainees can log in through the account. The specific functions include:

(1) Post and role selection: trainees can choose the post and role to carryout simulation exercise, including 5 teams and 12 exercise posts.

• Management group

Post: driller, assistant driller, mud man, lead tong man, backup tong man, derrick monkey, recorder, roustabout.

• Command group

• Alert group

• Emergency group

• Medical group

(2) Personal protection and device detection

• Protective equipment to be selected for normal operation in the well site

• Equipment status inspection related to emergency process under normal operation

• Emergency equipment inspection

(3) Exercise plan setting

The students who created the room set the parameters of the plan, including the initialization status of the well site; whether there were incidents like explosions, overflows, H2S leaks; wind direction, wind speed, etc. The parameters setting will directly affect the handling of various incidents in the exercise scenario.

(4) Emergency exercise

• Individual exercise: the individual exercise is a single-user operation exercise. The user can directly select individual exercise mode after entering. By selecting the exercise incidents type and exercise posts (multi-positions are optional), clicking the start, you can enter the project to start a single exercise. Under the single-player mode, other post, except the selected ones, are automatically replaced by computers.

Team exercise: team training is a multi-person collaborative joint exercise. The user first selects the incident type and creates an exercise, and then, other LAN users can see the created room and the incident type. After the user enters, they can choose exercise posts (multiple positions are optional) and start a multi-person joint exercise. In the multi-person joint exercise mode, multiple people need to cooperate in the emergency handling simulation exercise to complete the task and collaborative operation. At the same time, the characters not selected by the users are automatically replaced by the computer.

(5) Emergency handling

It trains and assesses the trainees’ mastery of emergency response knowledge in the form of answering system, and it supports knowledge classification, examination question importing, and test plan (number of questions and score) setting.

  • Why is the simulator necessary to oil and gas industry?

Since the beginning of the 20th century, simulators have been used in different industries as tools to train and to facilitate the growth of the operators of the machinery. This type of training is, without a doubt, one of the most effective ways to mitigate labor risks, develop skills needed, and increase productivity. 

In oil and gas industry, accidents happen from time to time, such as blowout, H2S leakage, fire, explosion, machinery injuries, etc. Working in oil and gas field is of high risk. According to statistics, almost 36% of these accidents were caused by mistake in operation. Sufficient pre-post training is essential. A simulator makes this possible, which provides a virtual training environment, for new staff the get familiar with the working environment, site scene, and operation devices in advance. With the simulator, new staff can also experience the common incidents which may occur in real operation, and learn to judge and handle the emergencies. So that in real work, most of the accidents can be judge or avoid in an early stage, and therefore reduces risks and increase production.

  • Why is your simulator better than other simulators I’ve used in the past?

With the mission of “Assist training, reduce accidents and benefit the society”, Esimtech have been doing their best to design, develop and service every simulator. Esimtech simulator has its features as strictness, reliability, realisticness, lifelikeness. Problems and incident playback function enable trainees to experience troubles at any time which helps trainees to better master the skills of judging and handling common troubles.
