PASON'S NEXT GENERATION ePVT 

The Enhanced Pit Volume Totalizer (ePVT) is a critical component of a comprehensive well control system. Building on over 20 years of success and reliability of the original Pason PVT, the ePVT has advanced capabilities and scalable features to facilitate the safe and efficient construction of today’s complex wells. The ePVT enables drillers to monitor changes in mud volumes during drilling and tripping, which may indicate mud losses or a kick. Hosted on the new Pason Rig Display, the ePVT displays mud system data via an intuitive and easy-to-read software interface.

CHALLENGE

Detection of kicks and lost circulation is critical to the safety and economics of a drilling operation, but early indicators of events are missed due to the complexity and overload of data from standard PVT systems.

IMPACT

Rigs spend hours or days more in non-productive time (NPT) and incur potential safety issues.

SOLUTION

Designed to be rich in data, yet simple in implementation, the Pason ePVT enables drillers to easily view and configure the entire mud system.

RESULTS

Fluid gains and losses are detected early providing reduced mud costs, NPT, environmental clean-up, and improved safety.
