Case Study: MPC® BP, Caspian Sea
Presence of high-pressure shallow water and gas in the Caspian region, notorious for its unconsolidated formations, had previously imposed a lot of costs on BP. Learn how MPC® was vital in enabling BP to achieve effective top-hole cementing.
- CHALLENGE: Succesful isolation of unconsolidated sands.
- SOLUTION: MPC® enables the management of wellbore pressure in such a way that unwanted fluid exchanges between the wellbore and casing annulus are avoided during the circulation of cement slurry and its setting time.
- RESULTS: MPC® was vital in achieving effective top-hole cementing. With all the features inherent within the system, the cement slurry was placed with minimal risk of loss and flow.
