Abstract

Managed pressure drilling technology has been studied and widely applied in the oil and gas drilling activities. This technology enables safe execution under complex and risky conditions such as narrow drilling windows, deep water, fractured rocks, abnormal pressure and temperature, etc., in which the conventional drilling technology is not appropriate. The paper presents studies evaluating the efficiency of the managed pressure drilling method when drilling through these complicated conditions in Vietnam and building a model to calculate the managed pressure drilling parameters for wells in the Cuu Long basin under high pressure, high temperature conditions (HPHT).
