E-420 - Well Architecture & Equipment

5 days FOR/ARCHIE
Level
Foundation
Audience
  • Young engineers, tool pushers, supervisors, other professionals involved or interested in well architecture.
Purpose
  • This course provides a thorough and practical understanding of the methodology for designing a casing program.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • calculate different casing strings using the Drilling Data Handbook,
  • select the right position of casing shoes,
  • calculate the stress applied to the casing pipes,
  • select the casings as per the constraints encountered while drilling,
  • choose the right wellhead with regard to the casings used.
Prerequisite
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Application to a real case (project) for the participants in the “Drilling and Completion Engineering” training course (E-412C).

DRILLING & CASING PROGRAM 0.5 day
  • Role of casings.
  • Parameters to be considered to determine well architecture:
