Visual, multiphase flow simulators aid spill drills

Work is ongoing to couple a visual simulator and a multiphase flow simulator to enhance spill drill exercises, Add Energy VP Marketing Thomas Selbekk said at the 2018 IADC International Well Control Conference in Milan, Italy, on 23 October. Over the past few years, Add Energy has been involved in more than 30 such drills, many in the Gulf of Mexico. In this video with DC, Mr Selbekk talks about the purpose of spill drills, lessons learned from previous drills, as well as how the two simulators – the VROV and the OLGA-WELL-KILL – have been combined to form an interactive training tool that can mimic a real-world incident.
