Managed Pressure Drilling

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.

Summary Summary Customer Guide to Managed Pressure Drilling
In today’s drilling environment, the industry is facing greater pressure-related challenges while developing mature and unconventional fields, both on land and offshore. Marginal wells can become more feasible by increasing efficiency and improving safety. Managed pressure drilling (MPD) is an enabling technology that can help accomplish these goals while also mitigating drilling risks. This document contains recommendations to help successfully implement MPD when formation pressures are above hydrostatic recommendations.

Summary Summary GeoBalance® MPD Services: Controlling Collapse Pressure White Paper Sign in required
The Effects of Stress The earth’s crust is continually moving through a process known as plate tectonics. This process creates stresses within the crust. These subsurface stresses can be categorized into three principal stresses, all mutually perpendicular to one another. The relative size of each of these stresses is used to classify the type of fault regime. When the overburden is the highest of the three stresses, the fault regime is classed as normal. When one of the horizontal stresses is the highest, the overburden is the intermediate stress, and the second horizontal stress is the lowest, the fault regime is classed as strike-slip. When the overburden is the lowest stress, the fault regime is classed as reverse.

Summary Summary Mexico: GeoBalance® Optimized Pressure Drilling Service Reduces Operational Costs by Controlling Bottom Hole Pressure and Borehole Instability Sign in required
An operator required a managed pressure drilling (MPD) operation to be performed in one of the highest producing oil fields in the central portion of the State of Tabasco, South Mexico. The deviated well is in a high-temperature environment (253° C / 487° F) with a naturally fractured formation. MPD was needed in a section of the well notorious for kick and lost circulation due to pressure regressions. The nearest offset well had experienced a kick and subsequently lost over 2500 barrels of mud.
