Create a Simulation and Drill

This tutorial teaches you how to run a simulation interactively and what must be done in order to drill.

In order to drill and advance the open hole, there are several parameters that must be set. These are:

  • Flow Rate
  • Hook speed (positive is downward)
  • Desired ROP (how fast you wish to drill)
  • Surface RPM

Once you click play and these parameters are set, you will begin to drill after touching bottom.
