CS Inc. Simulator upgrade
Are you working with Windows XP?
CS Inc. is reaching out to you to explain some options that are available to you. As you may know, Microsoft is no longer supporting windows XP operating system. Some of our clients are still using this operating system and I am sure that the simulator is working just fine as it always has. Sooner or later you will need to upgrade your computer system to windows 10 operating system to keep your simulators in good working condition. Upgrading now rather than when your computer crashes is always better to be proactive rather than reactive. CS can plan a smooth transition with minimal down time to make sure your simulator is ready for use when you need it. The CS UltraLight simulator can be upgraded without any down time at all. CS can send the laptop computer and the student monitor to you and it will be a plug and play operation.
A software upgrade is also available as our software department is constantly adding more capabilities keeping up with new equipment and tools used in the oil and gas industry. The IADC and IWCF are also adding new simulator requirements. You might as well look into this upgrade while you are upgrading your computer system. Software upgrades are not very expensive compared to the competition. This is a 1 time charge without any license or maintenance fees.
Is your simulator electronics the old style that uses the multicolor ribbon cable?
Some CS customers are working with old style electronic circuit boards. I’m sure that these simulators are working just fine as they always have. The good aspect of this is that the CS simulators are very reliable. Unfortunately, electronic equipment does get out dated and needs to be upgraded just like everything else. The parts for the old-style electronic circuit boards are no longer available on the market. This has required CS to keep up with technology and upgrade to the latest electronics, still keeping the same reliability that we always have.
CS Inc. announces the new release of the DPWS-12UL-CT simulator. Coiled Tubing simulator. This simulator uses the same platform as the DPWS-12UL model. The simulator is equipped with an instructor laptop computer. 2 each 22-inch touch screen HMI (Human Machine Interface) monitors and 2 joysticks. 1 joystick for the driller and another joystick for the supervisor operating the remote choke. The simulator is packaged in a single rugged Pelican case for easy portability. Total weight of the simulator is approximately 50 lbs. or 23 Kg.
Below shows a picture of the coiled tubing rig of which the students will use the controls to preform many different coiled tubing operations. The driller can control the injector speed, Stripper Pressure adjust, Injector Chain Traction Pressure adjust, pump pressure, Drill out multiple plugs, fracking operations. Simulator failures are also incorporated into the program.
Multipurpose simulator platform
This simulator is developed with a multipurpose platform. CS can configure the computer with any combination of the simulator models DPWS-12UL.
DPWS-12UL Conventional drilling and well control
DPWS-12UL-MPD Managed Pressure Drilling
DPWS-12UL-CT Coiled tubing operation
1 simulator package with 1 simulator model or multiple models.
CS Inc. announces the new release of our latest developed simulator for use with Managed Pressure Drilling. This simulator uses the same platform as the DPWS-12UL model. The simulator is equipped with an instructor laptop computer. 2 each 22-inch touch screen HMI (Human Machine Interface) monitors and 2 joysticks. I joystick for the driller and another joystick for the supervisor operating the remote choke. The simulator is packaged in a single rugged Pelican case for easy portability. Total weight of the simulator is approximately 50 pounds or 23 Kg.
Below shows the manifold configuration of the MPS simulator. Located at the top right section of the monitor shows the MPD manifold used with Managed Pressure Drilling operations. The manifold is equipped with a back pressure pump to maintain over balance in the well when making and breaking connections. A Coriolis flow meter is installed to monitor change in flow through the manifold. An auto choke is also installed in the manifold configuration to maintain a desired ECD (Equivalent Circulating Density).
The conventional drilling and well control manifold is located to the bottom right section of the screen in the case of hydrocarbons overloading the mud/gas separator, the driller can switch over to conventional well control practices to kill the well.
Multiuse simulator platform
This simulator is developed as a multiuse platform. CS can combine the base model DPWS-12UL simulator and as an option to customers that also teach MPD operations, can be added as a second program to the computer system. Customers can teach conventional drilling and well control using the base model DPWS-12UL. And if the customer is teaching MPD operations, the instructor can select the MPD program that is also loaded on the same computer system.
1 simulator package equipped with 2 simulator models.
CS Inc. announces the release of the new addition to the CS simulator fleet called the CS DPWS-12UL (Drilling, Production and Work over simulator). Included in this simulator package is an instructor laptop computer, 2 each 22-inch touch screen HMI (Human Machine Interface) monitors and 2 joy sticks. The laptop computer is used by the instructor to launch the simulation exercise and control the scenarios at hand. The instructor can monitor all activity during the simulation and initiate faults within the scope of the well or the equipment used in drilling and well control instance’s.
The Driller uses a touch screen HMI to operate and interact with the rig equipment such as pumps, the lineup of the choke and stand pipe manifolds as well as the lineup of the BOP. The driller also has a joy stick used for pipe handling operations such as run in and out of the well, making and braking connections and setting slips. The Top drive rotary is also located on the driller’s joy stick.
The Supervisor uses an HMI to interact with the choke gauges and controls that are used on a Swaco choke. The supervisor also has a joy stick used to open and close the choke during well control scenarios. This simulator is packaged in 2 small light weight pelican cases durable for shipping and handling. Two mounting brackets are included for table top mounting of the joy sticks.
The same reliable multiphase CS downhole model is utilized as it is in all of CS simulators. 3D graphics are standard on this model. The simulator meets and exceeds requirements set by IADC and IWCF.
