This paper reviews the successful application of a mud-cooling and managed-pressure-drilling system in a high-pressure/high-temperature well to explore the potential of a Mesozoic carbonate platform in the Nile Delta of Egypt.
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.
