SureShot™ MWD Pressure While Drilling Sensor (PWD)
APS's Pressure While Drilling (PWD) sensor measures annular and drill pipe pressures in all collar sizes. 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.
Managing Downhole Pressures
Measurement and real-time monitoring of hydrostatic and dynamic circulating fluid pressures for balanced, managed pressure drilling (MPD), and underbalanced drilling (UBD).
Maintaining Formation and Borehole Integrity
Real-time annular and bore pressure measurements help assess the optimum pressures required within narrow fracture and pore pressure windows.
Managing Hydraulics Programs
Real-time determination of equivalent circulating density (ECD) for hole cleaning, swab and surge pressures for borehole stability, and BHA pressure loss.
Supporting Early Detection Programs
Timely annular, bore, and differential pressure readings facilitate early detection of fluid influx and lost circulation.
