Effect of Axial Tension on Collapse Strength

Example

casing design1

Casing Design

What is casing?

Casing

Cement

Why run casing?

1. To prevent the hole from caving in

2. Onshore - to prevent contamination of fresh water sands

3. To prevent water migration to producing formation

Casing Design - Why run casing, cont’d

4. To confine production to the wellbore

5. To control pressures during drilling

6. To provide an acceptable environment for subsurface equipment in producing wells

7. To enhance the probability of drilling to total depth (TD)

e.g., you need 14 ppg to control a lower zone, but an upper zone will fracture at 12 lb/gal.

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. 47 lb/ft)

Burst

Collapse

Burst: Assume full reservoir pressure all along the wellbore.

Collapse: Hydrostatic pressure increases with depth

Tension: Tensile stress due to weight of string is highest at top

Casing Design - Burst

Example 1

Design a 7” Csg. String to 10,000 ft.

Pore pressure gradient = 0.5 psi/ft

Design factor, Ni=1.1

Design for burst only.

burst example

Burst Example

1. Calculate probable reservoir pressure.

2. Calculate required pipe internal yield

pressure rating

example

Example

3. Select the appropriate csg. grade and wt. from the Halliburton Cementing tables:

Burst Pressure required = 5,500 psi

7”, J-55, 26 lb/ft has BURST Rating of 4,980 psi

7”, N-80, 23 lb/ft has BURST Rating of 6,340 psi

7”, N-80, 26 lb/ft has BURST Rating of 7,249 psi

Use N-80 Csg., 23 lb/ft

collapse pressure

Collapse Pressure

The following factors are important:

The collapse pressure resistance of a pipe depends on the axial stress

There are different types of collapse failure

collapse pressure1

Collapse Pressure

There are four different types of collapse pressure, each with its own equation for calculating the collapse resistance:

Yield strength collapse

Plastic collapse

Transition collapse

Elastic collapse

casing design4

Casing Design

Collapse pressure - with axial stress

1.

YPA= yield strength of axial stress equivalent grade, psi

YP= minimum yield strength of pipe, psi

SA= Axial stress, psi (tension is positive)

2. Calculate D/t to determine proper equation to use for calculating the collapse pressure

If Axial Tension is Zero:

J-55 14.81 25.01 37.31

N-80 13.38 22.47 31.02

P-110 12.44 20.41 26.22

example 2

Example 2

Determine the collapse strength of 5 1/2” O.D., 14.00 #/ft J-55 casing under zero axial load.

1. Calculate

the D/t ratio:

example 21

Example 2

2. Check the mode of collapse

Table on p.35 (above) shows that,

for J-55 pipe,

with 14.81 < D/t < 25.01

the mode of failure is plastic collapse.

example 22

Example 2

The plastic collapse is calculated from:

Halliburton Tables rounds off to 3,120 psi

example 3

Example 3

Determine the collapse strength for a 5 1/2” O.D., 14.00 #/ft, J-55 casing under axial load of 100,000 lbs

The axial tension will reduce the collapse pressure as follows:

example 3 cont d

Example 3 cont’d

The axial tension will reduce the collapse pressure rating to:

Here the axial load decreased the J-55 rating to an equivalent “J-38.2” rating

example 3 cont d1

Example 3 - cont’d

…compared to 3,117 psi with no axial stress!
