CUTTING-EDGE VIRTUAL REALITY HARDWARE

Endeavor’s innovative hardware reinvents training programs for a new generation of learners that have grown up with video games, computers and modern technology. They can now learn through hands on, real-time and immersive simulations using real-life controls that will prepare them to become the industry leaders of tomorrow. We currently offer three main configurations including the X1 Dome, X2 Cyber Chair, X3 Desktop and combination packages for multi-user or classroom training environments.

DOME

The X1 is a full scale dome simulator which is perfect for training personnel for advanced drilling procedures and petroleum engineering practices.

CYBER CHAIR

The X2 Cyber Chair model is our most popular hardware solution and comes fully equipped with overhead and front mounted displays. It is also portable making it an ideal solution for onsite deliveries and multi-user classroom environments.

DESKTOP

The X3 is a cost effective but highly capable desktop training solution that is also very portable and ideal for multi-user classroom environments.

CLASSROOM PACKAGES

Classroom packages can consist of combinations of the X1 Dome, multiple X2 Cyber Chairs or X3 Desktops, combined with instructor tablets, screens or other hardware that are custom configured and suited for a multi-user learning environment. Contact us today and let us configure a custom solution for your needs.

GROUND-BREAKING SAFETY TECHNOLOGY

Endeavor’s innovative use of virtual and augmented reality can help reduce the many health and safety challenges inherent in the oil and gas industry by lowering the incidents of drilling accidents and injury. Drilling STS empowers operators to visualize what matters, resulting in greater learning retention and increased personal and operational safety.

Ensure Tomorrow’s Safety, Today.

  • Safer Training
    Training through virtual reality provides a way for personnel to make mistakes and learn from them in a safe environment, ensuring higher retention rates and lowering the potential for critical errors.

  • Accident and Injury Prevention
    Operators can train and prepare for both routine and unexpected situations. Operators master proper techniques, practice difficult tasks and learn how to instinctively and correctly react in emergency situations like unstable downhole conditions, equipment malfunctions and blowouts.

  • Environmental Safety
    Operating  oilfield equipment is costly and junior operators can increase those costs by burning more fuel, causing more wear and tear and even blow outs, spills and explosions.  With Drilling STS operators learn from their mistakes in a virtual environment through experiential training.

CUSTOM-MADE SIMULATOR SOLUTIONS

We currently have several training simulation products under development that will be available soon, including Coil Tubing STS and Wireline STS. Drilling STS is available now and can be fully customized to your specific needs. We can customize all of our software with company specific policies, procedures, equipment and even for specific geological formations and drilling operations. Contact us today and we’ll create a fully customized solution for your specific needs.

Drilling STS meets the simulator standards of International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) and International Well Control Forum (IWCF) certification programs.

FAQ

The purpose of the drilling simulator is to train prospective drillers in equipment operation, drilling operations and well control. Users will work through basic procedures such as tripping in and out, through intermediate scenarios like drilling ahead through a variety of formations, all the way up to advanced scenarios like controlling a blowout and resolving contingencies.

Yes. We support customizations and bespoke implementations of:

  • Top drive
  • Iron roughneck
  • Mud pumps
  • Standpipe and choke manifolds
  • Blowout preventers
  • Downhole tools and bottomhole assemblies
  • Drill string equipment

Furthermore, everything below the surface can be configured to suit any learning program.

The simulator is intended for a driller, supervisors, geologist and engineers to work through scenarios, while an instructor or supervisor stands by and monitors the drillers’ progress. Drilling STS can be deployed to a classroom, training institution or rig site drillers.
