HOUSTON –Three new Well Control Competency Assurance Training Systems will be installed at Texas Tech University by Check-6.
Each Well Control CAT System features a 150° dome display which delivers academic and simulation modules designed for both rig crews and students to learn and practice the fundamentals of primary and secondary well control for both surface and sub-sea scenarios. The modular curriculum, created by Check-6, is designed to enhance classroom instruction and add hands-on simulation exercises to well control training and certification courses. The system also includes the Check-6 Learning Management System to track and document individual performance for all academic and simulation training.
The Well Control CAT Systems and curriculum were deployed by Check-6 to the Bob L. Herd Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas Tech University and will be installed in the Chevron Well Control Simulation Lab at the new Terry Fuller Petroleum Engineering Research Building.
“Sophisticated learning platforms such as Well Control CATS are playing a critical role in the development of today’s digital oilfields, and we are pleased to deploy high-tech, hands-on training systems to help prepare future petroleum engineers for real world situations,” said Jason “Mac” McAlister, COO for Check-6 Training Systems.
