MPD to PMD ™

The future of Managed Pressure Drilling is here with Opla’s PMD™ (pressure management device). While MPD (managed pressure drilling) is becoming a commonly used drilling practice, the techniques and equipment haven’t changed in decades. The Opla team was formed with the common goal of bringing disruptive technology to the drilling industry. PMD™ was designed and engineered with automation, digitalization, performance drilling, and environmental factors in mind.

DIGITALIZATION

PMDSmart™ was designed with the driller in mind. Its simplified UI and built-in automation ensures it can easily be run with minimal training. Just set the desired downhole pressure, and the real-time hydraulics and automated choke reactions take care of the rest. IIoT and cloud infrastructure allows the RTOC to update necessary parameters in the hydraulics engine based on actual well parameters, or even take remote control of the PMD™. Cloud integration also allows for client viewing of all device parameters, improving operations and downhole visibility. All data collected is stored and analyzed by OplaML (machine learning) to optimize drilling parameters and eliminate NPT.

PERFORMANCE DRILLING

PMD’s compact design allows it to be easily rig integrated with minimal or no structural modifications. This design eliminates the long rig in/out times associated with traditional MPD systems. All the benefits of fully automated MPD packages in a compact device that can be easily rig integrated or run stand-alone to maximize drilling results and eliminate pressure-related NPT. The PMD’s smaller on-site footprint, elimination of manned personnel, decreased mud costs and ROP optimization instantly improves the ESG of any drilling operation.
