MPD & UBD

At the onset of forming Blade, we knew that Managed Pressure and Underbalanced Drilling would represent the future of drilling. We provide a complete range of annular pressure control engineering services including Underbalanced Drilling (UBD), Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) and Mud Cap Drilling. Quantification of the benefits of UBD and MPD is a focus and expertise of Blade.

Our core services are:

  • Candidate reservoir screening and evaluation
  • Well design and engineering
  • Project management
  • Well control
  • Site supervision
  • Project auditing/peer review

Evaluating. Planning. Executing.

Our unparalleled drilling engineering services cover a broad spectrum, starting from candidate selection and conceptualization through planning and detailed engineering, to execution of underbalanced, managed pressure and mud cap drilling projects. We offer independent and objective evaluation of potential drilling candidates. Our highly experienced engineers and operational staff provide unmatched expertise and benefits to our clients.

Project Framework

Experience has proven that planning, implementing and sustaining a high-quality MPD/UBD project requires effective management and provision of the right resources through each phase of the project. Blade’s project management framework provides an excellent structure for planning and implementing a project, optimally utilizing and managing project resources. The framework contains a concise list of deliverables, and provides structure to the overall project plan. All disciplines and activities are involved, including Reservoir Engineering, Engineering, Drilling, and Production Engineering. Special attention is given to the management of Health, Safety and Environment (HSE).

We also offer comprehensive training programs which include basic and advanced levels, as well as on-site personnel training.
