Managed Pressure Drilling

Rig Pump Diverter

Managing the pressure, reducing the risk

Understanding bottom hole pressure regimes in the increasingly complex drilling arena is critical for reducing uncertainty and maximizing asset value. Managed pressure drilling (MPD) allows you to properly navigate the challenging pressure windows between pore and fracture pressure increasingly found in complex wells. Drilling with MPD gives operators the ability to rapidly adjust bottom hole pressure to reducing non-productive time (NPT) risks associated with mitigating kicks, losses and wellbore stability issues. With MPD you can decrease bottom hole pressure related NPT, reducing drilling days and improving overall economic viability of well construction.

Real-time hydraulic pressure modeling provides greater control

With the Halliburton GeoBalance® MPD services, you can stay in control and manage pressure related challenges confidently. Along with the major benefits that MPD services bring, Halliburton continues to incorporate the highest levels of safety by continuing to develop advancements in loss and kick detection. With our DetectEV ™ and ActEV ™ systems, we continuously monitor the well for undesired events and can safely manage these critical scenarios.

Our wellbore hydraulic pressure control simulator, GB Setpoint ™ collects real-time data from several sources to provide an accurate downhole pressure model. With patented techniques, we update the wellbore model taking into account multiple fluid density, rheology, compressibility, temperature, flow rate, pipe rotation, wellhead pressure, surge and swab effects, cuttings loading, depth, and more to control the well at any point along the wellbore.

Choose GeoBalance managed pressure drilling services to:

  • Improve rate of penetration
  • Drill narrow pressure margins
  • Reduce influxes and losses
  • Access bypassed reserves
  • Improve wellbore stability
  • Reduce casing strings
  • Minimize mud-skin effect

Whether you need a land-based rotating control device or a fully automated offshore MPD package, Halliburton provides the right solution to help you drill faster and safer by managing the pressure and reducing the risk.
