If you are looking to optimize the performance of your operators

and make the most of the potential of your resources….

Simulation-based training is the solution.

 

The industry has already begun to see the potential of this technology, especially in the field of training, education, and demonstration of industrial processes.
Virtual reality platforms, based on desktop computers, offer an immersive experience, recreating situations with 3d models.
The simulation-based training proposes a work environment tailored to each user, represented with remarkable realism, thanks to the capacity of VR lens technology.

Virtual Oilfield - Version 2.0

Virtual Oilfield - Version 2.0 This platform runs on personal computers based on Windows operating systems with virtual reality devices and can be developed for each specific situation responding to the needs of each client. The Virtual Oilfield platform simulates the operation of a typical hydrocarbon production station or battery. The intention of this application is not to represent exactly the functions of a battery, but to show its immersive capabilities for training purposes. The arrangement and functionality of the Battery elements were based on a basic and standard design of a transfer station, as well as the flow, temperature and pressure parameters.

The simulator has two modes of operation:

Normal / Learning mode

It allows going through the installations of the Battery and all its components. The parameters of each element can be checked through the measuring instruments. In addition, it has interactive informative posters, which are accessed by proximity. In this mode, the battery is in equilibrium, the levels in normal tanks and pumps at their working regime. You can interact with most of the active devices which will modify the global variables. Through the main menu, it is possible to reestablish the initial state not only of valves, but also of the main components.

Contingency mode

The objective of the platform is to train the Production Supervisor to maintain the efficiency of the facilities.

The operator will have to deal with and solve typical situations, the platform will simulate an imbalance in which the performance of the battery will be affected by particular cases in real life.

For this, the supervisor has a Tablet, which shows the main parameters that govern the system in terms of flows, pressures, and general alarms, in addition to the battery's own instruments.

This will trigger 4 different failures in random order in several of the elements of the system, which must be resolved in the shortest possible time to maintain dispatch production.

 

Once the problem proposed by the simulator has been solved, a sign will indicate such an event, and immediately the next situation will be triggered in random order until all the resolutions are completed.
