MPD (Managed Pressure Drilling) has been used worldwide to overcome drilling challenges in onshore and offshore operations. MPD has proven to save significant cost efficiency in every applications, by reducing NPT (Non Productive Time) caused by drilling problems such as, severe loss circulations, loss-kick cycle, and well control events. Indonesia is one of major country in Asia Pacific that has several needs to developing or exploring new opportunities with drilling challenges, especially in
