6 Managed Pressure Operations - Experimental and Case Studies

Tuesday, 7 March
Lysefjorden B
Technical Session
Managed Pressure Operations are a key enabler for drilling operations with a challenging drilling window. In this session we will explore some of the latest applications of MPD, in both field operations and research and development. Successful applications in the field, proven through case studies, stimulate confidence in the industry to apply MPD to resolve current challenges. Meanwhile, the research showcased targets applying MPD techniques to new challenges. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn best practices to apply on their respective projects.
