Managed Pressure Drilling Fundamentals, Methods and Applications, First Edition provides the basic infrastructure and extended support necessary for drilling engineers to apply managed pressure drilling to their operations. Enhanced with multiple new chapters and contributions from both academic and corporate authors, this reference provides engineers with the basic processes and equipment behind MPD. Other sections explain the latest technology and real-world case studies, such as how to optimize the managed pressure drilling system, how to choose the best well candidate for MPD, and how to lower costs for land-based operations. Packed with a glossary, list of standards, and a well classification system, this book is a flagship reference for drilling engineers on how to understand basics and advances in this fast-paced area of oil and gas technology.
Delivers a thorough background on the fundamentals (hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, geomechanics, well control, etc.) underlying managed pressure drilling technology
Delivers a fundamental collection on managed pressure drilling variants, equipment, procedures, and best practices
Presents a balance of information covering both theory and practical applications
Includes multiple impactful chapters, including MPD control systems and automation
Drilling engineers, petroleum engineers, production engineers, well control engineers, PhD petroleum engineering students

Eric van Oort
Dr. Eric van Oort became Lancaster Professor in Petroleum Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin in 2012 after a 20-year industry career with a major oil and gas operator. He holds a PhD degree in Chemical Physics from the University of Amsterdam. He has (co-)authored more than 150 technical papers, holds 14 patents and has 11 patent applications in progress, is a former SPE Distinguished Lecturer, a SPE Distinguished Member, and the 2017 winner of the SPE Drilling Engineering Award. At UT Austin, he directs drilling and completion R&D in two industry consortia (RAPID and CODA) covering drilling automation, big data analytics, cementing and zonal isolation, well abandonment and decommissioning, drilling / completion / fracturing fluids and drilling-related geomechanics.
