In modern drill operations, it is no longer sufficient or competitive to punch holes in the ground and hope for a gusher. Today, drilling utilizes bleeding edge technologies in order to minimize environmental impact, maximize ROI and streamline the production process. It is a field which Baker Hughes probably knows better than anyone, and its technologies are the gold standard when it comes to down-hole operations.
Baker Hughes approached Six Foot to build a drilling simulator to showcase some of its unique down-hole visualization and drill control systems. The result was a full-on video game experience; the simulation allows users to take command of a multimillion dollar rotary steerable drill. Using simulated displays of the Baker Hughes Azitrak system, players pitted their drill piloting skills against unique stratifications across the globe.
