IADC UBO & MPD Committee to reorganize

Posted on 17 February 2009

Subcommittees target UBO, MPD, HSE and training, standards and nomenclature, and committee outreach. Subcommittee officers can be found on the committee’s web site.

The group’s most pressing priority is the drafting of a “best practice” document for managed pressure drilling to complement the recently published API RP92U, Recommended Practice for Underbalanced Drilling Operations. The MPD document is targeted for completion in late 2009 or early 2010. Companies engaged in applying this technology are encouraged to participate.

The next UBO & MPD Committee meeting will be held in Stavanger, Norway, on 14-15 May 2009. Check the committee’s web site or contact Ken Fischer for more information.
