Case Study: MPC® BP, Caspian Sea
The cementing of top-hole sections in narrow pressure windows has traditionally been highly problematic. Learn how MPC® enables BP to cement 22”surface casing and isolate notorious sands.
- CHALLENGE: Cementing Top-hole sections in a narrow pressure window.
- SOLUTION: With Managed Pressure Cementing (MPC®), it was possible to reduce the pressure
when the weak zone gets exposed to higher hydrostatic pressure during circulation.
- RESULTS: This facilitated an excellent level of control over the flow and wellbore pressure, both automatically and manually
