The use of MPD to control the risks and costs of drilling wells that have narrow downhole pressure limits by actively managing the wellbore pressure profile has
become a common practice. What’s not so common is subsea engineers with
hands-on knowledge of maintaining spreads and the skills to troubleshoot the operation, maintenance and repair of Managed Pressure Drilling equipment – identifying issues before they become hazards.
Additionally, HOSE can offer verification of MPD by impartial third party as well as analyse, plan and execute MPD programmes alongside your own personnel.
MANAGING THE PRESSURE.
REDUCING THE RISK
HOSE engineers understand bottomhole pressure regimes in the increasingly complex drilling arena – critical for reducing uncertainty and maximizing asset value. Managed pressure drilling allows you to properly navigate challenging pressure windows between pore and fracture pressure that are increasingly found in complex wells.
MPD gives operators the ability to rapidly adjust bottomhole pressure to reducing non-productive time (NPT) risks associated with mitigating kicks, losses and wellbore stability issues.
