The demand for hydrocarbons coupled with the depletion of existing reservoirs has accelerated the necessity to drill more challenging and complex wells. The application of Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) technology is currently one of the most effective methods available to manage these challenges, and provide the safety and environmental assurance necessary to operate. As MPD systems become more sophisticated and integrated, crew resource management, along with training and competency, is essential to achieving safe operational performance. This Info Sheet provides guidelines and recommendations for the training and evaluation of personnel involved in Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) operations.
