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, on land and offshore.

Drilling with MPD gives operators the ability to rapidly adjust bottom hole pressure to reduce non-productive time risks associated with mitigating kicks, losses and wellbore stability issues. With Halliburton MPD solutions you can decrease bottom hole pressure related NPT, reducing drilling days and improving the overall economic viability of well construction.
Focusing on automation can remove operators from controlling the system.
With Halliburton MPD services, you can stay in control and manage pressure related challenges. Halliburton continues to incorporate the highest levels of safety by advancements in loss and kick detection. With our DetectEV™ and ActEV™ systems, we continuously monitor the well for undesired events to safely manage these critical scenarios.
Our wellbore hydraulic pressure control simulator collects real-time data from diverse sources to provide an accurate downhole pressure model. With patented techniques, we update the wellbore model, accounting for multiple fluid densities, rheology, compressibility, temperature, flow rate, pipe rotation, wellhead pressure, surge and swab effects, cuttings loading, depth, and other factors to control the well at any point along the wellbore.
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. Choose Halliburton's managed pressure drilling services to:
