One of the most significant initiatives being undertaken by the IADC Underbalanced Operations and Managed Pressure Drilling (UBO/MPD) Committee is to develop operating guidelines for MPD. Guidelines for MPD with a surface BOP stack are under review, and the committee will next address mud cap drilling with a subsea BOP stack, Martin Culen, 2014 Chair of the committee, said. In this exclusive video, Mr Culen, Regional Managing Director & Training Director at Blade Energy Partners, provides an update of committee activities.
