Managed Pressure Drilling Design & Operations

In this day course, we explain current MPD methods, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each approach to determine which is most suitable for a particular well section. You will learn how to determine a well section’s “anchor point” and then to select the appropriate fluid system, set operating boundaries, specify the correct equipment, and prepare the drilling program. We will also discuss project economics and analyze numerous case studies. By the end of the course, you will be able to understand and apply screening criteria for MPD candidate selection, design principles for MPD wells, and the basic principles of operating an MPD well.
