MPD/UBD

Managed-pressure drilling has been associated as a technology used only on problematic wells and only as a last resort. However, when integrated at the beginning of operations as part of a comprehensive well plan, it becomes a performance-enhancing solution for any type of well classification, including development, directional, multilaterals, and horizontals.
This paper describes the path to implementation of full casing rotation during primary cementing jobs.
MPD was used to successfully drill through a pore pressure ramp and address a well-control event in conjunction with conventional methods.
