ExxonMobil issues training simulator license to EON Reality

Offshore staff

DOHA, Qatar – ExxonMobil has awarded a global commercial license for Immersive 3D Operator Training Simulator technology to co-developer EON Reality.

The supermajor says the technology incorporates ultra-realistic, multi-angle immersive virtual reality for training process operators and engineers in oil and gas production, processing and transportation facilities. It also allows effective training in a safe and controlled environment.

The technology supports the development of simulators that combine dynamic process training and fully functional complex 3D models, the latter including interactive 3D objects such as rotating valves, push-buttons and active gauges; natural gestures and voice commands; and enhanced 4D sensory conditions such as tactile feedback, odors, vibration, and wind simulation.

A dynamic process simulator uses actual plant operating conditions to create realistic training scenarios for critical procedure execution, upset condition training, and emergency response training. Additionally, scenarios can be devised for workforce development, competency assurance, project commissioning support, new hire orientation, and more efficient turnaround/shutdown planning.

A full-scale simulator of an actual gas processing facility in Qatar has been operational since 2013, providing realistic training on more than 300 interactive control devices in six gas processing units.

EMRQ opened its facility at Qatar Science & Technology Park in 2009 to conduct research in areas of common interest to itself and the State of Qatar.
