WEI MPD is an automatic innovative MPD.
It is a well tested product patented by WEI.
It is skid mounted, easily transportable, with small footprint.
The main innovation consists in the use of the Venturi system, so it can measure with high accurancy the flow IN and OUT from the well, and detect the caracteristic of the mud including the presence of gas.
The WEI MPD System controls and manages the gap of the three-fase flow range (solid-liquid-gas). The system is composed by:
- static density measurement in the mud tank,
- one venture type gauge
- one gas flowmeter at the well inlet.
At the well outlet, the system foreseen a dynamic density measurement, one dynamic measurement venture type and one back up pressure control at the borehole choke.
The system also checks well “high pressure” and “gas detection” from the well.
The measurement are skid mounted and they are easily bypassed by gate valves. All the system is remote controlled by an ATEX PC panel on the drill floor or positioned at your choice.
The MPD can be setted at the beginning of the well adding various value and limits regarding pressure and mud flow.
System is completely ATEX and the choke is electrically moved whereas the emergency control is manual.
MPD operates from 800 l/min to 4.500 l/min.
The inlet measurements are API 10K WP, the outlet measurement are 5K WP.
