FIRST MPD-HIL TEST

Marine Cybernetics (MC) has successfully

completed the first ever Third Party

Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) test of a Managed

Pressure Drilling (MPD) control system. The

test was conducted at MC locations in

Trondheim for Statoil and AGR ENHANCED

DRILLING.This test is a part of Statoil’s

technology qualification of EC-Drill. Through

engaged participation in Third Party HIL

testing, all parties have contributed to

offshore safety.

THE MPD SYSTEM

The system tested was EC-Drill®, developed by

AGR EHNANCED DRILLING, which is a system

designed to control bottom-hole pressure by

changing the level of drilling mud in the riser. The

system enables effective drilling of depleted

reservoirs and narrow pressure windows. The

system tested is the first version of the next

generation EC-Drill® which incorporates new

control system capability, and will eventually be

used on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Read the full aricle on our home page www.marinecyb.com under About Us
