Upstream learning simulator for interactive training

Simulation-based training techniques, tools, and strategies can be applied in designing structured learning experiences as well as targeting teamwork competency.

The OilSim* upstream learning simulator takes users through the entire exploration and production business process—from acquiring a block to its development, production, and abandonment. In this innovative and interactive training method, participants are divided into teams and challenge each other to achieve the best results, based on strategy selection and decision-making in a simulated business environment.
