Riserless Mud Recovery (RMR) .

The CTS system consist of a control container. CTS was primarily developed to solve the waste problem during drilling of top holes when there is a accumulation of cuttings. This is the forerunner to the RMR system. • • . a cable winch and a submersible module with an electric motor and a pump.History Riserless Mud Recovery (RMR) • In 1997 AGR introduced the CTS – Cuttings Transport System. mud and other disposal on and around the template. cement.

How does the RMR work? Shallow water RMR .

Why use the RMR? • RMR handles unstable shallow formations • RMR = No Shallow Water Flow while Drilling • RMR reduces the risk of Shallow Gas Flow • Compliance with Enviromental Rules .

RMR on jack-up rigs Two projects so far: • One for enviromental reasons for Woodside • Riserless mud recovery on Wilcraft • Scoot Reef 0-discharge campaign • One for geotecnical reason for BP • Avoid air gap by hot tapping into conductor • In Egypt on Constellation II .

Managed Pressure Cementing (MPC) What is Managed Pressure Cementing? • A way of managing Equivalent Circulating Density (ECD) during cementing of surface casing A way of controlling the hydrostatic loading on the well bore annulus during cementing of surface casing A way of identifying and mitigating losses during cementing A way of avoiding that shallow water flows or shallow gas interrupt the curing process of the cement A way to prove without doubt that cement has been returned to mud line • • • • .

The displaced mud and later cement is sucked out of the cement ports When the cementing is done. all valves is closed and the pressure buildup in the annulus is monitored • Valve C Inline pressure transmitter Valve B • .Retrievable valve assembly • Valve A • During normal drilling valve B and C and the system is used as a normal RMR system During cementing valve A and C is closed. valve A is closed while valve B and C is open to flush sea water through the system. and valve B is open. During curing of the cement.
