About this Training Course

This advanced casing design course is delivered as a scenario based training course. The course takes the participants through all the aspects of casing design from first principles. A working spreadsheet is created by each participant for casing design that 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 and operational aspects of casing design. A full casing design project from an actual well is used during the course. Participants 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 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.

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

This course is intended for drilling and completion engineers that are required to gain competency in casing design for wells.

It involves a significant amount of calculations and math and participants will require to understand excel.
