Course description

Fundamentals of Casing Design - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. Casing design is an integral part of a drilling engineer's work scope. This course provides a comprehensive overview of the design process, emphasizing the working stress approach currently used in the industry. On completion of this course, successful participants will be able to select casing points, identify tubular requirements and loads, and design and specify the required casing string. Through a combination of lecture and extensive hands-on examples, the fundamentals of casing design are imparted to the attendees. 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. In addition safe handling, running, and hanging practices are covered. Participants will be furnished Dr. Byrom's textbook, Casing & Liners for Drilling and Completion, and computer spreadsheets to facilitate routine design calculations. One personal computer is provided, at additional cost, for each two participants.
