Pressurized Mud Cap Drilling - Managed Pressure Drilling | SLB

Managed pressure drilling equipment

Reliable pressure management

MPD Equipment
MPD Equipment

To fully enclose wellbore circulation in an MPD system, M-I SWACO offers an industry-leading array of pressure control products. Each hardware component is selected for optimal integration with all levels of control—from automatic to manual.

During the design phase, additional components can be selected to meet high-specification needs such as kick detection, fluid separation, and nitrogen gas generation and injection. We offer flowmeters, mud-gas separators, and other technologies to suit these applications.
