Paper presented at the IADC/SPE Managed Pressure Drilling & Underbalanced Operations Conference & Exhibition, September 14–16, 2021
Paper Number: SPE-206386-MS
... Abstract Managed pressure drilling (MPD) is a technology that allows for precise wellbore pressure control, especially in formations of uncertain geomechanical properties (in specific: Fracture pressure and pore pressure gradients). The rotating control device (RCD) is the backbone to the MPD...

Paper presented at the IADC/SPE Managed Pressure Drilling & Underbalanced Operations Conference & Exhibition, September 14–16, 2021
Paper Number: SPE-208436-MS
... Pressure Drilling (MPD) could be the answer when planned and executed correctly. This paper drives the point that MPD is more than simply dropping chokes on location. Prior to drilling the well, the Operator initiated the communication very early with the MPD service provider and created an avenue...
