API Certificates

All Beyond Energy RCD Products are developed in accordance with API Spec 16RCD


MPD Integrated Manifold Building

Beyond has designed two distinct Choke Manifold Buildings, depending on the customer needs.

MERCURY MPD™ is an entry-level, low-cost MPD system with a minimal footprint and only requires one truckload to mobilize. This system is fully automated, offers complete digital integration with the rig, and can be operated with no MPD personally on-site.

View Brochure »

NITRO MPD™ is Beyond’s flagship system package that is a fully loaded MPD system intended for truly challenging MPD applications. This system incorporates advanced Hydraulic models to control downhole ECD during drilling and tripping operations with pinpoint accuracy and is perfect for drilling narrow window wells. It allows for early event detection against kicks and losses and includes our patented Nitrogen BackPressure system. This feature ensures you retain dynamic control of your well even in static well conditions such as connections or power loss at the rig.

Automated BackPressure Control System

Maximum Working Pressure Can be programmed to any working pressure
Number of Consoles 2 (local and remote)
Remote Control via Tablet Yes
Control Mode in Case of Failure Last pressure value is maintained
Backpressure Control Type Automated (programmable as a function of flow rate)
Multiple Independent Choke Control Yes
Power Source Electric Pneumatic (backup)
UPS (backup)
Communication Protocol WITS, Modbus (other protocols available)
Remote Control Yes, via internet connection

 

Our Nitrogen BackPressure Management System automatically maintains surface backpressure during static periods in case of pump or choke failure. The automated backpressure control system has been designed by actual users who have in-depth knowledge of MPD operations and was created to deliver rapid and accurate pressure control while providing flexibility to operate under a wide range of conditions.

*Patent pending


Integrated Gas Buster Separator (BIG-B)

Beyond offers a Gas Buster / Separator specifically designed for MPD and Flow Drilling applications, where gas needs to be removed from the drilling fluid and cuttings mixture. The BIG-B has been designed to avoid the need for cranes during rig up and rig down operations and minimize the footprint by housing the MPD manifold building and separator in the same skid.

View Brochure »

MPD Separator

Besides our BIG-B Separator model, Beyond also offers a standard high capacity Gas Liquid Separator for Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) and Underbalanced Drilling (UBD) operations that require handling a continuous flow of gas, liquid, and cuttings.

Flare Stack

Our Flare Stack complements the MPD system by offering a safe and reliable way to flare gas returns from the wellbore. The Flare Stack is designed to self-erect, saving time and money from the conventional design that requires a crane to rig up and rig down the MPD system.
Beyond’s Flare Stack offers an integrated solution that contains an advanced ignition system and a flame arrestor with a bypass for emergencies.
The Flare Stack Skid has been designed to accommodate pipe baskets, eliminating additional trucks during transportation.

MPD Skid Walking System

Run the most efficient MPD operation with Beyond MPD technology: Minimize the rig down and rig up time between wells on the same well pad using our MPD Skid Walking System.
For those operators looking to decrease moving times between wells on multi-well pads, Beyond offers a Walking System solution that allows “walking” the skid containing the MPD Choke Manifold Building and the MPD Separator, avoiding the need for crane or pickers as well as the need to rig up or rig down MPD lines while moving between wells.

Advantages of Beyond MPD Services


Less loads to transport

Our MERCURY MPD™ package only requires a SINGLE truckload to the site. Our complete NITRO MPD™ package requires only 3 loads vs. 5-6 loads for packages available in the market today.

Faster & less expensive rig up and rig down

Our integrated package requires less piping, and with our self-erecting systems, no crane is needed for rig up and rig down operations.

Unique MPD package walking system

Beyond’s patented walking system allows for an even faster rig-up and rig-down on multi-well pads since it is unnecessary to modify the existing system for well-to-well mobilization. This system is offered with our complete NITRO MPD™ package.

Smaller footprint

For our NITRO MPD™ package, no additional interconnecting pipework is needed between the choke manifold and the separator. Only 2 skids are required for the manifold, metering system, separator, flare stack, and pipe baskets.

Minimum crew on-site

No crew is required for MERCURY MPD™. For our NITRO MPD™, our standard crew covering 24-hr operations consists of only 3 people on-site covering site supervision, equipment maintenance, RCD operations, and continuous pressure monitoring and management.

Patented backpressure maintenance technology

Our nitrogen backpressure management system automatically maintains surface backpressure during static periods in pump or choke failure.

State of the are backpressure control system

The automated backpressure control system has been designed by actual users who have in-depth knowledge of MPD operations and was created to deliver rapid and accurate pressure control while providing flexibility to operate under a wide range of conditions.

24/7 Engineering support

With the top Engineering team in the business, our staff assists our valued customers with designing their wells, supporting the field operations 24/7, monitoring all drilling activities while ensuring the technical integrity of the drilling operations.

The most experienced and motivated team of Operators and Supervisors

All our senior supervisory staff have 15+ years of global knowledge in MPD and UBD applications worldwide, ensuring your well is in the best hands possible.

Experience

Our experienced team has drilled over 1,000 wells in the last 5 years, ranging from multiphase operations to HPHT wells with no practical drilling window, while under various conditions around the globe.

MPD Project Process


The first stage of a MPD Project is the technical feasibility analysis (quick look) to determine if the project is technically feasible. Beyond can provide an insight into how MPD can help and what would be necessary to drill using MPD techniques.

Once the project has been deemed technically feasible, a rig visit is performed by qualified Beyond personnel to ensure that the MPD equipment can be rigged up safely and efficiently at the rig site. Recommendations can also be made at this stage to optimize time and resources for the operation to be performed.

After the preliminary steps are completed, the Beyond team compiles all the information and generates a complete MPD Program that encompasses all the drilling parameters to be followed during the operation. Equipment specifications, procedures and process diagrams are also included in this document.

During the job execution, the equipment is rigged up on location and the MPD Program is executed. During this stage, Beyond generates daily reports and provides 24/7 technical support to ensure all new data and conditions are considered and plans modified if necessary.

After the job is performed, all information generated during the operation is gathered and analyzed to include in an ‘End of Well Report’ document that contains lessons learnt from the operation as well as actual well information that is very useful for future drilling jobs.
