Operators drilling with Dynamic Pressure Control expand access to previously undrillable reserves while reducing mud costs and NPT.Dynamic Pressure Control (DPC) is a managed-pressure drilling (MPD) service to maintain constant bottomhole pressure (CBHP) while drilling. Operators drilling the challenging environments found in mature fields are benefiting from its ability to overcome the pressure limitations of conventional drilling and expand their drillable prospects.A challenge facing operators drilling mature fields with depleted pressure is the narrow margin between abnormal and depleted pore pressure on one side, fracture gradient on the other, and...
