Managed Pressure Drilling

Duration: 5 days

About this course

The purpose of this course is to help participants recognize the benefits of MPD and enable them to safely apply the technology in their operations. We start from a basic understanding of the variants of MPD and in which situations each is best applied. After establishing the fundamentals of MPD we move on to candidate assessment and selection, then to project implementation.

Participants will undertake design and operational calculations. Case studies are used to highlight benefits and potential pitfalls. They will spend considerable time on the simulator to apply knowledge gained in classroom sessions.


The course is principally targeted at well engineers who are responsible for improving drilling performance in their operations. The course will also benefit other staff, operator, contractor or service company personnel, who are involved in MPD operations.


Delegates will receive a certificate from Well Academy on completion of the course.
