Advanced Casing Design

This course covers casing design for oil and gas operations. The course addresses all of the casing design aspects from first principles. A working spreadsheet is created during the course by each participant for casing and liner designs that following the course can be used by the participants in their day to day jobs.

The objectives of this course are to provide participants with a competency in casing design. The course addresses the engineering aspects of casing design based on fi rst principles. A full casing design project from an actual well is used during the course. Participants are taken step by step through all of 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 hand on exercises and Participants 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.
