Modular MPD Flexibility

Two operators: One in Canada, the other one in the USA have utilized the flexibility of Pruitt MPD Lite™ Modular system to meet their changing MPD requirements onsite.

Challenges/Problems

Changing formations and unknown regional geology leads to cautions MPD planning.

Action/Solution

Flexible MPD Modular system easily can be tailored to a client’s needs in MPD designing phase or onsite.

Execution/Results

Two operators in separate countries (Canada and USA) have now fully utilized the flexibility of Pruitt’s MPD Lite™ Modular system, made operational cost savings and time.

Details

An Operator in Canada and in the USA used Gen-2 package of Pruitt MPD services and configured the same package to meet their changing well requirements.

  • Both a Canadian and USA based land operators have started off with a full dual automated MPD choke system, complete with IPRV and bypass manifold.
  • During their drilling programs, based on their perceived drilling risk they have customized the MPD system to suit their well knowledge based on the previous operations.
  • The Canadian Operator started operation with a full system. They initially dropped both IPRV’s and switched from dual chokes to single choke system onsite. After realizing that they had a potential for exceeding the fracture gradient, they settled on using single automated choke, IPRV and bypass.
  • The US Operator started off with a full MPD system as well and based on previous operations data they dropped full MPD system down to a single automated choke with bypass system onsite.
