Our MPowerD™ managed pressure drilling (MPD) product line provides value-added and sustainable solutions to help you manage the most challenging drilling environments.
The MPD systems from NOV offer another level of integration into the drilling controls network, bringing a seamless and fluid experience for the driller, as well as making operations safer and more efficient. From chokes, valves, and piping to P&ID design and engineering, we offer standalone or fully integrated MPD systems either in standard manifolds or fit for purpose for land, shelf, and deepwater sectors. By partnering with preferred service providers, we can also meet our customers’ needs when additional services are required.
MPowerD 1500SE MPD System
The MPowerD™ 1500SE Managed Pressure Drilling Choke and Control system takes the pressure control precision to another level by using an electric choke and a state-of-the-art controller algorithm. The 1500SE control system is built for performance and reliability using an electrically actuated choke and triple redundant wellbore pressure sensors. The 1500SE offers a complete set of automated features to improve the operational performance with MPD. Customers can use the 1500SE system as a free-standing system with a dedicated MPowerD HMI or can choose to integrate with NOVOS™ using the MPowerD MPD App.
1500S MPD System
The 1500S MPowerD™ is a fit for purpose system which combines a complete set of MPD automated features with the field proven experience of the NOV’s HXE Hydraulic choke. Our choke manifold and control system has been proven for use in many MPD applications and is most suitable for land drilling operations.
5000S Choke Manifold
The MPowerD™ 5000S Managed Pressure Drilling Choke and Control System is designed for use in a wider range of MPD applications and is suitable for land, shelf, and offshore drilling operations. The MPowerD control system allows automatic control of the choke, with a complete list of automated features, the 5000S system can also be connected to the powerful NOV Comprehensive Hydraulics Model that provides a real time pressure response, given any changes in the drilling parameters in order to keep bottomhole pressure constant in a defined anchor point.
The MPD Control System supports Dual Choke Mode. This enables manual control of secondary choke while primary choke is in automatic mode. The system can also be configured to automatically swap chokes if a fault is detected or it is unable to reach the target setpoint by using the primary choke. If needed, chokes can be swapped from primary control to secondary control while in operation at the same time maintaining the target wellbore pressure
The MPowerD™ buffer manifold is designed to route flow without a need to reconfigure piping. The buffer manifold can be used as part of advanced drilling systems, either in a riser gas handling system or as part of a full managed pressure drilling (MPD) system including pressurized mud cap drilling. NOV can provide a complete set of solutions to turn any rig to become MPD-Ready.
