Background

Kelda was founded late 2013 by key personnel involved in R&D on automated managed pressure drilling (MPD).

Since 2007 Hydro and Statoil have put major efforts into the development of enhanced automation technology for pressure control in drilling. This research has been based on internal competence from production optimization and multiphase flow modeling, and collaboration with leading international expertise on applied advanced control system design.

Kelda was established in agreement with Statoil with the objective to strengthen the development of the technology, and accelerate implementation.



Kelda
Old Viking word for a well, or a natural spring – today written as “kilde”; a source of flowing water which never freezes.
Represents something pure and fundamental; a source of in-depth knowledge on well hydraulics and control. Kelda also represents source code, which is the basis of our products, i.e. the implementation of a control system.
