... temperature of ~30,000 psi and ~500° F, respectively. Below 15,000 feet, the increased solubility of gas posed a particularly difficult risk for kick detection. The need for precise kick detection was magnified further by the uncertain magnitude of the pore pressure, the reduced kick tolerance, and well...

In contrast, MPD methods quickly detect and actively apply pressure to control an influx in a fraction of the volume. Furthermore, conventional influx removal methods are typically slow...

... Abstract Detection and control of gas kicks in OBM/SBM while drilling through narrow pore - fracture windows has always been a challenge due to gas solubility and mud compressibility. Continuous closed loop monitoring of the well and automated early kick detection and control helps to keep the...

... challenges. Weatherford’s MPD system has proved its effective application in drilling challenging wells. Its unique early kick and loss detection capability helps to identify such event in very early stage, take corrective action and hence to minimize the nonproductive time. Early detection of a kick / loss...

... Abstract Closing the wellbore at the top with a Rotating Control Device (RCD) for some kind of Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) operations raises a number of issues with regards to well control and kick detection. The wellbore is closed and the standard flow check of looking into the well is no...
