The need for new methods for drilling wells is increasing, and new technology is introduced to the industry in order to solve the challenges we face. We are facing tougher and more challenging fields to drill. This includes depleted fields, HPHT fields and deep-water fields. This brings up challenges which are not so easy to solve by drilling conventionally. Several techniques are introduced to help us, where a group of them is called managed pressure drilling (MPD).
