Audience

    • Young engineers, tool pushers, supervisors, other professionals involved or interested in well architecture.

Level

  • Foundation
  • 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.
Course Content

DRILLING & CASING PROGRAM

0.5 day

  • Role of casings.
  • Parameters to be considered to determine well architecture:
  • Well type.
  • Pore and frac pressures.
  • Completion, lithology.
  • Different types of casings:
  • Surface.
  • Intermediate.
  • Production.

WELLHEAD

0.25 day

  • Different elements.
  • Wellhead assembly sequences.

CHARACTERISTICS OF CASINGS

0.25 day

  • Geometric, physical and mechanical properties of the pipes, the connections.
  • Use of Drilling Data Handbook.

SHOE POSITIONING

0.25 day

  • Hypotheses to be considered, casing point - Kick tolerance.
  • Casing point - Kick tolerance.
  • Examples and exercises.

CASING STRING CALCULATION

0.25 day

  • Principles and assumptions to remember for the different strings.
  • Stress cases study:
  • Collapse.
