Paper presented at the IADC/SPE Managed Pressure Drilling & Underbalanced Operations, March 28–29, 2007
Paper Number: SPE-108338-MS
... Abstract Corrosion mitigation is critical for successful managed pressure drilling (MPD), underbalanced drilling (UBD), and air drilling operations. During these operations, large volumes of gas are injected to lower the hydrostatic pressure in the annulus. Most often the injected gas contains...
