Managed Pressure Drilling
MPD can help mitigate serious downhole problems like kick/loss scenarios, lost circulation, or extremely narrow pore pressure/frac gradient windows. Signa has designed some of the world’s most technically challenging MPD applications, including deepwater Gulf of Mexico, Russia, Algeria, the Caspian Sea, the North Sea, and MPD/Casing Drilling in South Texas. Signa also served as Project Manager for the world’s first MPD from a floating vessel in offshore Malaysia, and is currently leading the way into deepwater MPD in the U.S. GoM. We have engineered and executed all variations, including Constant Bottomhole Pressure (CBHP), Point of Constant Pressure (PoCP), Dual Gradient Drilling (DGD), and MudCap Drilling (pressurized MCD and Floating/Dynamic MCD). If you’re interested in how MPD can benefit your campaign, our engineers can explain all the details. Or we can design a MPD program specific to your well, including surface equipment diagrams, choke management plans, and flow rates. Using our experience with MPD variations, we can recommend your ideal application, including CBHP, PoCP, DGD, or MCD.
