Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) equipment is used by the operating oil companies during drilling operations to complement the existing drilling package when drilling through difficult reservoir sections which require to be drilled balanced or slightly underbalanced to avoid kick/ loss situations which can result in very expensive lost drilling time.
MTC manufactures both a high pressure API 5000psi gate valve type MPD manifold for offshore and onshore use and also a lower pressure ANSI #900 2000psi Ball valve type MPD manifold. MTC also manufactures a range of skid mounted and trailer mountedUnderbalanced Drilling (UBD) equipment which can include the integration of the above MPD equipment when required.
MTC also maintains a stock of mass flow Coriolis metering manifold skids and a range of high pressure 5Kpsi and low pressure 2Kpsi large bore piping packages on transportation racks for MPD or UBD applications. MTC can also provide additional equipment such as specifically designed mud gas separator (MGS) skids on a made to order basis.
