Managed Pressure Drilling Choke Control

Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) is an adaptive drilling process used to precisely control the annular pressure profile throughout the wellbore. The objectives are to ascertain the downhole pressure environment limits and to manage the annular hydraulic pressure profile accordingly.

Cansco Control technology have developed an advanced Drilling Choke Control Unit for MPD applications, and features easy to use parameter settings for specific application requirements.

The modular system includes the powered chokes, a power unit, and a control panel. The system is designed to adjust the power actuated choke to maintain specified choke inlet pressures based on user input or specified data received from well-modelling software. The control panel provides for pressure set point entry, and displays choke position and pressure, pump strokes and allows users to view and adjust trends and alarms.
