It is no secret that drilling in deep water is challenging. It is always associated with high pressure and high temperature (HP/HT). HP/HT is commonly used to refer to wells with pressures greater than 10,000 psi and temperatures greater than 300°F. These pressure and temperature ratings may be even higher in some cases. Drilling in HP/HT conditions poses numerous challenges.
