Casing design is an integral part of a drilling engineer's work scope. This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the design process, emphasizing the working stress approach currently used in the industry. Upon completion, participants will be able to select casing points, identify tubular requirements, loads, and present a design which incorporates life cycle considerations. Estimation of standard and special loads is covered in detail. Standard theories of strength and failure are discussed as well as advanced considerations for combined loads. Topics related to safe handling, running and hanging practices will additionally be covered.

Target Audience

Engineers, site supervisors, and technical managers responsible for casing design and/or review of the casing design for the full life cycle of the well. Participants should have at least one year of drilling-related experience AND be in a role that requires that they perform a detailed casing design.

You Will Learn

Participants will learn how to:

  • Incorporate well objectives and offset data to assure wellbore integrity through its life cycle
  • Incorporate risk mitigation strategies into well design
  • Apply alternative design approach to address unanticipated torque/drag forces, etc.
  • Conduct pre-job safety analysis and identify potential well control trouble spots
  • Walk through key equipment and hazards associated with running, landing and cementing casing
