On The Rig (OTR) has been accredited by the International Well Control Forum (IWCF) for well control training.
The unique mobile OTR simulator, which enables rig crew training to take place onsite at the rig itself, received industry approval for Level 3 and 4 well control from the IWCF following months of development by Drilling Systems and leading oil and gas university, Robert Gordon University.
IWCF is one of the global independent bodies which sets international training standards for well control accreditation. Having IWCF accreditation means delegates using the OTR receive one of the highest-quality, industry-approved training qualifications in internationally-recognised well control standards.
Drilling Systems worked with Robert Gordon University (RGU) over several months to develop the market-leading product, adding features such as a separate choke control panel and ensuring the software complies with the IWCF’s requirements.
The OTR can now be used to train well control crews all over the world on-site – providing a cost effective and immediate method of training and assuring competency.
