MWD Pressure While Drilling Sensor

SureShot-PWD

APS’s MWD 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.

Applications

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 supports 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, plus BHA pressure loss.

  • Timely annular, bore and differential pressure readings facilitate early detection of fluid influx and lost circulation.
