Managed Pressure drilling Market Trends

ID: MRFR//1057-CR | 116 Pages | Author: Chitranshi Jaiswal| March 2024

Global Managed Pressure Drilling Market Overview


The managed pressure drilling market Size was valued at USD 5895.05 Million in 2024. The managed pressure drilling market is projected to grow USD 8,314.8 Million by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.39% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). The market analysis and the global trends suggest that with the rising deep water and ultra-deep-water exploration and drilling operations will drive the market during the forecast period.


Managed pressure drilling (MPD) is an adaptive drilling process. It is used to precisely control the annular pressure profile throughout the wellbore. The main idea behind the MPD process is to create a pressure profile in the well to stay within close tolerances and close to the boundary of the operation envelope defined by the pore pressure, hole stability envelope and fracture pressure. MPD uses many tools to attenuate the risks and costs associated with drilling wells by managing the annular pressure profile. These techniques include controlling backpressure, fluid density, fluid rheology, annular fluid level, circulating friction, and hole geometry in any combination.


Rise in deep water and ultra-deep-water exploration and drilling operations id driving the demand of Managed Pressure Drilling. The oil and gas extraction and exploration industries are the prime drivers of the managed pressure drilling market growth, which pushes the market growth to optimum limits over the years. The increasing drilling activities in deep seas and ultra-deep seas for oil and gas extraction and exploration result in expanding the managed pressure drilling market size. The managed pressure drilling industry enables exploration and extraction activities that are difficult to perform in nature and allows drilling offshore projects which have many technical constraints. The oil and gas drilling activities include certain cautionary measures as these substances are highly volatile and therefore require managed pressure drilling systems that are efficient and safe. These features encourage increasing the market value.

managed pressure drilling market  Trends




  • Rising Deep Water and Ultra-Deep-Water Exploration and Drilling Operations




The oil and gas extraction and exploration industries are the prime drivers of the managed pressure drilling market  growth, which pushes the market growth to optimum limits over the years. According to World Energy & Climate Statistics Yearbook 2023, In 2022, global crude oil production increased by a record 5.4% rate, much above its 2021 growth (+1.6%) . The increasing drilling activities in deep seas and ultra-deep seas for oil and gas extraction and exploration result in expanding the managed pressure drilling market  size.


The existing wells are depleting day by day, and therefore, it requires new locations. These new locations are extremely critical to operating as they are mostly found in deep seas. The managed pressure drilling industry facilitates advanced extraction and drilling technologies that enable companies to execute difficult tasks. According to U.S. Energy Information Administration, global liquid fuels production was increased from 95.71 million barrels/day in 2021 to 99.94  million barrels/day in 2022. The managed pressure drilling industry enables exploration and extraction activities that are difficult to perform in nature and allows drilling offshore projects which have many technical constraints. The oil and gas drilling activities include certain cautionary measures as these substances are highly volatile and therefore require managed pressure drilling systems that are efficient and safe. MPD is becoming go-to solution and in some cases necessity to cater the increasing demands and challenges of the drilling industry, both onshore and offshore.


Rising Technical Developments for Drilling High-Pressure High-Temperature (HPHT) Wells


Drilling under HPHT conditions requires specialised equipment and proper tools. Drilling a HPHT well is a unique challenge combining technical and commercial elements. MPD technique was originated as a solution to “undrillable “wells, currently wells of all types can use the technique to manage critical downhole pressure more effectively, leading to improved drilling efficiency and enhanced safety. Managed Pressure Drilling is a safer and more effective drilling technique compared to conventional drilling, especially in wells with NMWW (Narrow Mud weight Window) and downhole hazards. Research paper published in SPE/IADC Middle East Drilling Technology Conference and Exhibition in May 2021, stated that there was a successful application of MPD technology to reach target depth (TD) in a narrow margin HPHT well in the North Sea.


Modern technological advancements for high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) drilling of wells will continue to drive the market during the forecast period (2023-2032) The drilling activities are extremely critical to perform as it raises a lot of problems such as loss of circulation, twisting off, stuck pipe, kick or loss scenarios, and many more. The market acts as a helping hand in resolving all these issues and advantages in improved penetration rate, narrow passage window drilling, avoid kick or loss, managing mud programs, wellbore ballooning early identification, less casing number, high efficiency, and less non-productive time. According to Journal of Petroleum technology, integrating MPD into HPHT drilling operation can offer significant operational benefit.


Automated Managed Pressure Drilling services offers a solution to mitigate many of the critical risks associated with HPHT drilling and thereby reduce drilling costs. Volume control is a major component of well control alongside keeping the bottom-hole pressure constant. With this advantage, MPD is available on all rig types ranging from Land Rigs, Jack Up Rigs, Semi-Submersibles, Tender Rigs and Dynamically Positioned drill Ships. Rising technical developments for drilling high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT) wells will escalate the managed pressure drilling growth during forecast period.
