PUT Repairs Multi-Purpose Drilling Simulator

TEHRAN (Shana) -- The Petroleum University of Technology (PUT) has launched a multi-purpose and high-tech drilling simulator for the first time in Iran.

The simulator is developed for controlling eruption of oil wells and preventing adverse events in the industry, with an investment of Rls. 2,500 million.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Mehdi Mir-Rokni, Deputy Director of Professional and Free Training Programs at PUT, outlined the steps taken to repair and set up the country's first drilling simulator, saying the university's efforts were aimed at showcasing the hidden capacities in the Iranian oil industry so that, despite the existing sanctions, the existing capacities can be properly tapped.

"Based on the statements of the Supreme Leader, the sanctions are an opportunity to know and look inside which should be used as an opportunity for the country,” he said.

Mir-Rokni further said such training programs as survival in the sea and helicopters under the name of HUET, Bosiet platform safety, four safety skills (survival techniques in the sea, firefighting, first aid and PSSR), IWUCF courses for oil well blowout control were being conducted in the university based on the latest international standards.

Elsewhere in the press conference, head of Parsian Knowledge-based Upstream Company Amin Abedpour, said the simulator was the first one of its kind to be developed in the Middle East.

He said the technical savvy for repairing and setting up the simulator was indigenized in Iran.
