Improving Drilling-Operation Efficiency by Use of a Mud Cap
This paper describes the planning and execution of use of mud-cap fluid in the drilling of an ultranarrow-margin (0.50-lbm/gal window at the planning stage) high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) well from a jackup rig.
Combining Pressurized-Mud-Cap-Drilling and Early-Kick-Detection Techniques
Pressurized-mud-cap drilling (PMCD) and early kick detection (EKD) are two unconventional drilling techniques that have been used widely individually, mostly in relation to closed and pressurizable systems and to managed-pressure-drilling (MPD) applications.
