Casing Design: Mexico City, Mexico City, lunes, 15. julio 2019

Course overview
This fundamentals casing design course is delivered as a scenario based training course using real well data. The course takes the candidates through all the aspects of casing design from first principles. A working spreadsheet is created by each student for casing design that can be used by the students in their day to day jobs
The course is designed for
This course is intended for drilling and completion engineers that are required to understand or conduct casing design.
Course objectives and outcomes
The objectives of this course are to provide students with a starting competency in casing design. The course addresses the engineering and operational aspects of casing design. A full casing design project from an actual well is used during the course. Students are taken through the API casing design calculations. Load cases, couplings, thermal loading, material selection and well control aspects of casing design. A large part of the course involves hands on exercises and students should have a calculator and a laptop computer with a spreadsheet program during the course. The course finishes with the operational aspects of running and cementing casing and introduces drilling with casing operations.
The outcomes of the course are that participants will understand;

Casing strengths such as yield, burst and collapse
All the load cases and associated design factors
Triaxial and combined loads
Material selection with regards to sour gasses and partial pressures
Thermal loading, annular pressure build-up and corrosion effects
Buckling and wear
Conductor casing design for land, surface BOP’s and subsea BOP’s
Drilling with casing 

Course outline
Day 1: IntroductionThe first day introduces the students to manufacturing process of casing and the API specifications of casing. The properties of steel are presented. This if followed by the introduction of casing design standards before moving on the calculations of tensile strength, burst, yield and collapse and axial loads of pipes.

Welcome and Introductions
Manufacturing of casing
API specifications of Casing
Properties of steel tubulars
Casing Design Standards
Tensile Strength, Burst, Yield, Collapse, Axial Loads
Day 1 Exercises; Load calculations for tensile strength, burst collapse and yield

Day 2: Pressures and TemperaturesThe second day of the course starts with pressures and temperatures. Students are shown the origins of pore and fracture pressures and hydrostatic pressures. Buoyancy calculations are done before moving to the design of the surface casing in the example well. With the surface casing designed, the couplings and connectors are presented.

Load Cases and Design factors
Design of surface casing
Couplings and Connectors
Day 2 Exercises: Hydrostatic pressures, pore and fracture pressures, buoyancy, design of surface casing.

 
Day 3: Kick Tolerance and Material SelectionDay 3 of the course starts with the design of a drilling liner. This is followed by gas pressures, leak off tests and kick tolerance. The design of the intermediate casing is then completed. Partial pressures, salt loading and material selection then completes the day.

Day 3 Exercises; Drilling Liner Design, Kick Tolerance, Partial Pressures, Intermediate Casing Design, Material Selection, Combined Loads, Triaxial design.

Day 4: Annular Pressures, Buckling and Conductor Design
The fourth day of the course starts with the design of the production casing. From there the course addresses annular pressure build-up, casing wear and corrosion of casing. Pipe buckling is covered before addressing conductor design. Conductor design is covered for land, offshore and deepwater operations.

Production Casing Design
Annular Pressure build-up
Casing Wear
Casing Corrosion
Buckling
Conductor Design Land
Conductor Design offshore surface BOP
Conductor Design offshore subsea BOP
Day 4 Exercises; Production Casing Design, Casing wear, Bucking, Conductor Design.

 
 Day 5: Running Casing, Drilling with Casing
The last day of the course starts with the design of the production liner and the aspects of tubing leaks. With the casing design completed we address the issues of blowouts and the considerations on casing design. The operational aspects of running and cementing casing are presented. Drilling with casing is introduced before we wrap up the course.
