What is HPHT? (High Pressure, High Temperature)

HPHT or High Pressure, High Temperature is defined as those Wells with a bottom hole temperature greater than 150°C (300°F) and requiring pressure control equipment with a rated working pressure of above 69 MPa (10,000psi) (S.P.E E&P Glossary, HPHT, 2013). Further advances in exploration, extraction and production mean some Wells are reaching higher pressures and temperatures, termed as Ultra HPHT (205°C, 138MPa) and even Extreme HPHT (260°C, 241MPa).
