Event Details

Course overview

This course is an introduction course and presents the students Managed Pressure Drilling techniques, design and equipment. The course starts with an overview of the MPD techniques such as constant bottom hole pressure and mud cap drilling operations. The course then presents the MPD techniques and equipment including deepwater MPD equipment. The operational aspects of MPD are addressed towards the end of this course.

The course is designed for

Course is designed for engineers, supervisors, rig personnel and service providers that are using or about to use MPD techniques. Wellbore pressure concepts are provided in this course and candidates should be familiar with basic hydrostatic calculations.

Course objectives and outcomes

Objectives of this course are to provide the students with a good understanding of the various aspects of managed pressure drilling. The student will gain knowledge of planning for MPD operations and gain knowledge of the equipment and operational requirements for both onshore, offshore and deepwater MPD operations.

At the end of the course the students will be able to

  • Design MPD operations both constant bottom hole pressure and mud cap operations
  • Design the engineering aspects of MPD
  • Understand well control aspects of MPD

Course outline

Day 1: Introduction

The first day the candidates are exposed to what managed pressure drilling is all about and how and where it is used. The history of MPD is presented together with the variants of managed pressure drilling. The static and dynamic pressure concepts in a well are presented to ensure that candidates understand the MPD issues with regards to bottom hole pressures.
