Example Casing Programs


Pete 203 drilling engineering

CONDUCTOR (1 or 2) (40’ – 300’)

  • Prevent eroding surface sediments and rig foundation by circulating the drilling fluid to the shale shaker.

  • Protects subsequent casing strings from corrosion.

  • Install director system on it.

    SURFACE(300' - 5000')

  • Control caving and washing out of poorly consolidated surface beds.

  • Protect fresh water sands from possible contamination by drilling fluid mud, oil or gas and or salt water from lower zone.

  • Install BOP on it.


Pete 203 drilling engineering

INTERMEDIATE CSG(1 or 2)

It depends on well depth and geology in specific area.

Primary Purpose:To seal off troublesome zones which:

  • Contaminate drilling fluid.

  • Jeopardize drilling progress with possible pipe sticking, excessive hole enlargement.

  • Contain abnormal pressure fluids, protect formation below the surface casing from higher pressure credited by mud.


Pete 203 drilling engineering

PRODUCTION CSG

1.It is set through productive interval to;

2.Segregate pay zone.

3.Can be used to produce fluid instead of tubing.

DRILLING LINER

1.Lower in cost.

2.Functions like intermediate.

PRODUCTION LINER

1.Lower in cost

2.Functions like production.


6 2 standardization of casing

6.2Standardization of Casing

API:American Petroleum Institute Standards.

  • Range of length

  • Outside diameter

  • Wt/ft.

  • Type of coupling

  • Steel grade


Classification of csg

Classification of CSG.

1. Outside diameter of pipe (e.g. 9 5/8”)

2. Wall thickness (e.g. 1/2”)

3. Grade of material (e.g. N-80)

4. Type to threads and couplings (e.g. API LCSG)

5. Length of each joint (RANGE) (e.g. Range 3)

6. Nominal weight (Avg. wt/ft incl. Wt. Coupling) (e.g. 47lb/ft)


Length of casing joints

Length of Casing Joints

RANGE 1 16-25 ft

RANGE 2 25-34 ft

RANGE 3 > 34 ft.


Pete 203 drilling engineering

  • OUTSIDE DIAMETER(4.5 -20")

    • Tolerance 0.75%

    • Usually slightly oversized.

    • Minimum permissible

    • Wall thickness = 87.5% of nominal wall thickness.

    • Nominal = approximate average

    • Drift diameter : Check ID

      • Minimum mandrel diameter that must pass

      • Unobstructed through the pipe.

      • Insures a bit size less than drift diameter.


Pete 203 drilling engineering

  • WEIGHT PER FOOT

    • Nominal wt/ft :is not true wt/ft but is useful for identification purposes as an approximate average (wt/ft)

    • Plain-end wt/ft: is the wt/ft of the pipe body excluding the threaded portion and coupling wt.

    • Average wt/ft:total wt. of avg. joint of threaded pipe with a coupling attached power tight of one of avg. joint.

      For design calculation nominal wt/ft. is often used.


Pete 203 drilling engineering

6.3Type of Coupling

  • A coupling is a casing connector which is made of casing material.

  • Most common types of casing. Joints are externally threaded from each end.

  • API specification the coupling should be of the same grade as the pipe body.


Casing threads and couplings

Casing Threads and Couplings

API round threads - short { CSG }

API round thread - long { LCSG }

Buttress { BCSG }

Extreme line { XCSG }

Other …


Pete 203 drilling engineering

  • CSG & LCSG

    These connectors have the same basic design:

    • Threads are round shaped and are spaced to give eight threads/inch.

    • Sometimes they are called API 8-round threads.

    • Threads are cut with a taper of 3/4 in/ft.

    • These are commonly used connectors because of their proven reliability, ease of manufacture and low cost.

    • Cut with a 60 angle, and has round peaks and roots.

    • Thread compound must be used to fill the voids and obtain a seal.

      Tensile strength of the joint

    • Joint Efficiency = < 100%

      Tensile strength of the pipe body


Pete 203 drilling engineering

API BCSG CONNECTOR

  • Joint efficiency is 100% in most cases.

  • It is tapered but longer thread run out ¾ inch/ft. for upto 75/8 inch.

  • Thread shape is square to reduce unzipping tendency.

  • 5 threads cut to the inch.

  • 1 inch/ft for 16 inch csg.


Pete 203 drilling engineering

  • API XCSG CONNECTOR

    • It is integral joint.

    • Pipe thicker near the wall.

    • OD is less than other API couplings

    • Sealing mechanism is metal to metal seal between the metal and the box.

    • Much more expensive.


Pete 203 drilling engineering

API Connectors


Pete 203 drilling engineering

  • STRENGTH

    • Strength is designated by casing GRADE

    • Grade code : Letter and number H-40, J-55, C-75, L-80

    • Letter is arbitrary.

    • Number designates the minimum yield strength of steel in thousands of psi.

    • Yield strength :tensile stress required to produce a total elongation per unit length of 0.005 on astandard test specimen.

    • Minimum yield strength = 80% of average yield strength observed.
