Managed Pressure Drilling
Today’s difficult drilling environments make wellbore construction a challenge. Drilling hazards—such as wellbore instability, lost-circulation zones, overpressurized formations, and shallow flows—can threaten the economics and operational viability of the well. Managed pressure drilling (MPD) is a highly successful means of mitigation for many of these problems.
We are the largest global provider of MPD services:
We began amassing the essential tools of the trade more than 40 years ago. Today our expansive portfolio of MPD equipment ranges from rotating control devices to a state-of-the-art Microflux™ control system.
