This 2-day course covers the relevant subjects required to understand the structural mechanics of downhole tubulars.  Material aspects, connection selection, performance properties, load cases and design factors are just a few of the many topics that are covered.  Class discussions will begin with fundamental design principles and progress up through calculations for burst, collapse, tension, compression, and triaxial stress.  

Participants are encouraged to bring in casing designs from the past and present to use as in-class examples for calculation and discussion.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the differences between the various API and proprietary OCTG grades
  • Select the appropriate API or proprietary connection based on the expected service conditions
  • Rationalize the appropriate load cases required for casing design
  • Calculate the burst, collapse, tension, compression, and triaxial design factors for a given service load
  • Understand how bending and buckling impact casing design

Why Attend?

This intensive hands-on course will give you the proficiency and confidence you need to design safe and cost-effective casing and tubing strings.

Who Should Attend

This course is for drilling and completion engineers, D&C Managers and drilling supervisors who want additional insight into casing design.
