APS’s Pressure While Drilling (PWD) sensor for WPR™ measures annular and drill pipe pressures in WPR tools. Captured data may be transmitted in real time via APS’s SureShot™ MWD/LWD system, or stored in downhole memory for later download and analysis. Real-time data or pressure alarms may be transmitted via SureShot MWD.
WPR™ Resistivity Pressure While Drilling Sensor
Managing downhole pressures
Maintaining formation and borehole integrity
Managing hydraulics programs
Supporting early detection programs
Features & Benefits
Measurement and real-time monitoring of hydrostatic and dynamic circulating fluid pressures for balanced, managed pressure drilling (MPD) and underbalanced drilling (UBD).
Real-time annular and bore pressure measurements help assess the optimum pressures required within narrow fracture and pore pressure windows.
Real-time determination of equivalent circulating density (ECD) for hole cleaning, swab and surge pressures for borehole stability and BHA pressure loss.
Timely annular, bore and differential pressure readings facilitate early detection of fluid influx and lost circulation.
For use with 4.75, 6.75 and 8.0 in. (121, 172 and 204 mm) WPR tools.
