A growing and expanding market
Managed Pressure Drilling is a growing and expanding market as drilling becomes more complex, uncertain and difficult. Conventional drilling in demanding reservoirs drives up non-productive time, risk and ultimately cost. MPD enables the drilling of reservoirs with narrow drilling windows (pore/fracture pressure windows) where conventional drilling fails.
In MPD, the control head represents the barrier which seals off the annulus pressure and is naturally one of the most critical components. Seal leakage means failure of the pressurised closed loop system and consequently loss of pressure integrity.
Wellis MPcD’s control head system, the PCD, provides greatly improved safety and redundancy in MPD operations by virtue of the patented multi-seal barrier with continuous condition monitoring. Read more about our products and services.
