Managed Pressure Drilling
Achieve unmatched safety and cost savings
Managed pressure drilling (MPD) started as an essential technique for drilling wells with narrow pore-pressure, fracture-gradient windows. Now, it is also a performance-enhancing solution. As the MPD leader, Weatherford has provided a field-proven portfolio of related technologies and services for five decades and counting. Ranging from automated to intelligent, our MPD offerings help you to enhance safety, lower well-construction costs, reduce well-control risks, and increase production.
Weatherford MPD technologies and Safe Influx Automated Well Control integrate in an exclusive, leading-edge combination that reinforces your capabilities for influx management with a quick, seamless transition from the primary to secondary well barrier.
A no-snub, no-kill alternative to conventional tripping techniques, our DDV® downhole deployment valve system helps you to increase tripping speeds, enhance personnel safety, and minimize formation damage in closed-loop drilling operations.
