Oil Platform Simulator

Oil Platform Simulator


Oil Platform Simulator (OPS, product codename) developed by Program-Ace belongs to such type of interactive 3D solutions, which are always created in partnership between industrial experts and IT specialists.

Speaking of oil and gas industry, it is important to mention, that OPS addresses such vital requirements of the branch as the increased demand for skills training and improvement among constantly changing teams, highest planning and management standards, serious risks for human health and safety - and, of course, technological complexity of the equipment.


Our client, an oil producing company, was developing new offshore oil deposits and therefore was in need of realistic simulator of the oil platform for teaching personnel, simulating the working processes and working out the emergency evacuation plan. The oil platforms are constructed at the highest technological level and 3D simulator of this platform had to strictly conform to the technical specification and technical drawings. Besides this oil platform needed to be fully interactive and full-featured training tool. This interactive 3D simulator was to be created in close cooperation between petroleum engineers and software engineers as well as 3D specialists.


The system is based on proprietary Ace3D Engine – a real-time 3D game/visualization engine, written in C++. The other core technology behind the OPS is Interactive 3D Simulation Framework. It enables such enhanced functionality as 3D environment planner, scenario planner, bot editor, etc.

Substantial experience in development of high-end 3D simulators (such as Emergency Evacuation or Military Training) allowed Program-Ace to produce and deploy such comprehensive enterprise-level systems.


Key advantages of Oil Platform Simulator include:

  • Photorealistic presentation of environment and branch-specific items;
  • Simulation of all working processes and emergency situations related to the platform’s daily operation;
  • Communication module enabling interaction between training participants;
  • Analytical module, that allows planning, registering and comparing of all necessary actions of the staff with the prescribed or desired ones.

It is important to mention, that Oil Platform Simulator is a highly customized product, which can be easily adjusted to the needs and peculiarity of each company or training course. That means that OPS’s key advantages definitely include also flexibility and scalability. Both product’s modular architecture and functional variety of features allow quick modification and enhancement of necessary sub-systems.

Technically accurate OPS enables users to:

  • Visualize the oil platform environment and branch-specific items;
  • Simulate all the working processes related to the drilling platform’s daily operations;
  • Work out different practical skills in the real-like environment;
  • Plan and analyzing the emergency evacuation routes;
  • Compare the actions of the training participants, etc.

Target Audience

Oil Platform Simulator opens new possibilities — first of all, for offshore platform owners and operators, as well as for specialized training agencies and centers involved into the education and testing of specialists for oil and gas industry.


Producing a system with an open cycle of development, OPS’ team continued the work on constant improvement of the product. This means that Program-Ace is always open for new customer-initiated inquiries and partnership offers from profile companies that operate in energy sector and related services.
