Case Study: ® Instant Kick Detection Demonstrated on Deepwater Well
Learn how a multi-national operator recently used EC-Drill®’s instant kick detection service to complement and enhance conventional kick detection methods during deep-water exploratory drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
- CHALLENGE: Deepwater exploration in unconfirmed pore pressure regime.
- SOLUTION: Selective placement and monitoring of EC-Drill® riser pressure sensors combined with revolutionary use of fingerprinting base line recording.
- RESULTS: EC-Drill® provides two new kick detection tools that complement and enhance conventional methods of detecting flow anomalies while drilling and during connections.
