e-cd™ Plus System

Automates e-cd connection process to remove personnel from the red zone

The e-cd™ Plus system enhances the process by replacing the manual connection procedure with an automated system that uses a delivery arm or overhead lift to attach a tool to clamp to the e-cd sub.  Once the tool is attached, a remote station automatically controls all steps of the side port connection and flow diversion.

ECD Plus

The e-cd Plus system maintains the benefits and case history of the manual e-cd system, but increases safety by removing personnel from the red zone in single barrier pressure applications, improves efficiency, and reduces overall connection time. 

Once the flowline is connected to the sub, the entire process is computer controlled from a remote station in a safe environment, providing a live look at the operation and instantaneous feedback of all systems. 

Automated operation with the e-cd Plus system provides:

  • Controllability of system by various levels of automation depending on operational needs
  • Retained service quality and system track record by utilizing same e-cd sub design
  • Threaded engagement of the side port flowline for safe flow diversion
  • Undermount delivery arm or overhead lift line system delivery options to the drillpipe
  • Seamless integration with MPD operations and software without requirement to add additional surface back pressure during the connection
