DOHA, Qatar — ExxonMobil Research Qatar (EMRQ) has announced that ExxonMobil has awarded a global commercial license for Immersive 3D Operator Training Simulator technology to co-developer EON Reality Inc.
The innovative technology incorporates ultra-realistic, multi-angle immersive virtual reality for training process operators and engineers in oil and gas production, processing and transportation facilities. The technology enables effective training to take place in a safe and controlled environment.
Sara Ortwein, President of ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company, said, “The Immersive 3D Operator Training Simulator provides a realistic 3D virtual environment that is a very close replica of an operating plant.
“These simulators are highly effective in training workers on how to prevent incidents, while teaching them to respond quickly and appropriately should any occur. This technology, developed in cooperation with EON Reality, is another example of how ExxonMobil continues to support research and safety, health and environmental protection across its global operations,” Ortwein highlighted.
The Immersive 3D Operator Training Simulator technology is the latest demonstration of how scientists and researchers at EMRQ are committed to helping Qatar and other global ExxonMobil partners supply the world with much needed energy, while improving environmental and operational performance of production facilities.
