Stena Drilling own multiple DNV approved Managed Pressure Drilling & Riser Gas Handling systems, from the Integrated Riser Joint through to the MPD Flowmeters, thus reducing substantial upfront costs to the operator as well as minimising online installation time. These modular systems can be installed on any of Stena Drilling’s MPD ready fleet.
Managed Pressure Drilling improves safety, maximises drilling efficiency, and permits drilling of wells that have previously been deemed un-drillable. The closed loop MPD system allows for refined control of the bottom hole pressure, as well as allowing drilling operations to continue with total loss of returns. Stena Drillings closed loop MPD system provides a safer, more efficient drilling system.
Advantages of Stena Drillings MPD system are:
- Field proven.
- Minimal 3rd party service companies required to operate the integrated MPD control system.
- Compact integrated riser joint, removing the requirement for complex lifting operations.
- Vessel engineering completed for the integration of the full MPD package.
- Fleet wide MPD operating procedures in place.
