ForgeFX, a custom simulation software development company based in San Francisco, California, in their blog ForgeFX on Simulations and Real-time 3D Serious Games, has brought to my attention the increasing number of Interactive 3D simulators for the drilling industry.
Here are the 3 examples provided by ForgeFX:
KCA Deutag, an international Oil & Gas services company based in the UK, has developed a real-time 3D drilling simulator that gives users virtual hands-on training for rig and drilling operations.
Drilling Systems Limited, another UK-based company, offers their own line of simulators for the Oil & Gas industry. The simulators deliver operator training for well sites, wellheads, refineries, offshore cranes, and port cranes.
