introduction
Introduction
  • Casing is defined as a heavy large steel pipe which can be lowered into the well for the following functions:
  • Keeping the hole open by preventing the weak formations from collapsing.

2) Serving as a high strength flow conduit to surface for both drilling and production fluids.

3) Protecting the freshwater-bearing formations from contamination by drilling and production fluids.

Introduction

4) Providing a suitable support for wellhead equipment and blowout preventers for controlling subsurface pressure, and for the installation of tubing and subsurface equipment.

5) Providing safe passage for running wireline equipment.

6) Allowing isolated communication with selectively perforated formation(s) of interest.

Introduction

project objectives
Project Objectives
  • To perform casing design for two vertical wells by:

1) Data collection from ADCO Company.

2) Selection of casing setting depths.

3) Selection of casing sizes.

4) Determination of number of casings.

5) Selection of casings grades and couplings.

6) Economic Analysis.

casing design for grade selection
Casing Design For Grade Selection
  • Casing Design for grade selection is done based on maximum load and minimum cost.
  • Collapse pressure, burst pressure and tension loads are calculated for all casings to select there suitable grades.
  • Pressure testing and biaxial effects are then checked for all casings.
light surface casing tension calculations
Light Surface Casing Tension Calculations

Where BF is Buoyancy factor, Wn is casing weight in lb/ft and Yp is the grade yield strength in lbf and SF is the safety factor.

light surface casing pressure testing
Light Surface Casing Pressure Testing
  • Pressure testing calculation :
  • Safety factor > 1.8, so H-40 can be used.
  • So, all four grades are safe to be used in the light surface casing.
light intermediate casing tension calculations
Light Intermediate Casing Tension Calculations
  • The grades are safe to be used.
  • The grades are also found suitable if the total tension load increases due to pressure testing as the safety factor is much higher than 1.8.
light casing production liner tension calculations
Light Casing Production Liner Tension Calculations
  • Both grades are safe for use.
  • Here, also by calculating the additional tension due to pressure testing it is found that the safety factor > 1.8.
heavy surface casing grade selection
Heavy Surface Casing Grade Selection
  • All the Grades are suitable for the Burst Pressure.
heavy surface casing pressure testing calculations
Heavy Surface Casing Pressure Testing Calculations
  • Pressure Testing for the weakest grade which is H 40 is done based on the following equation:

Biaxial effect:

Where: σa is the axial stress due to tension (psi

σy is minimum yield strength of the grade (psi)

Ypa is the effect yield strength (psi)

do is the outer casing diameter (in)

di in the inner casing diameter (in)

  • Biaxial effect is calculated using the following set of equations:

Where: A,B, C, F and G are empirical constants

  • The collapse pressure remain unchanged (Elastic Model)

1st Heavy Intermediate Casing Tension Calculations

  • Selected grades based on collapse and burst pressures and Tension Calculation:
  • The selected grades are safe and meet all the loads
slide49

2nd Heavy Intermediate Casing Tension Calculations

  • Grade C 75 of weight 32 lb/ft doesn’t satisfy tension load requirements so it is replaced with grade L 80 of weight 33.9 lb/ft.
  • Pressure testing and biaxial loads will not cause any change in the selected grades.
slide53

Heavy Casing Production Liner Grade Selection

  • Both grades are safe for production liner
conductor casing design
Conductor Casing Design
  • The conductor casing is set at 150 ft for both light and heavy casing designs.
  • Usually the conductor casing is driven for such shallow depth and this is also practiced in ADCO
  • Conductor size is 18-5/8 in. for light casing and 30 in. for heavy casing.
  • J-55 and X-65 grades have been selected finally for conductor pipe for light and heavy casing designs respectively.
api coupling selections
API Coupling Selections
  • Round short and long thread couplings are mostly used in the casing design.
  • The same couplings are considered in both light and heavy casing designs.
  • There strengths for each grade for all the casings designed so far are compared with the respective total tension load and it is found that the safety factor is higher than 1.8

Conclusions

  • Collapse, burst, tension and biaxial design principles are studied carefully to apply graphical methods for casing grade selection.
  • Maximum load design principles and worst loading conditions are applied for both casing designs successfully, and combination grades are selected for each casing string satisfying all constraints and meeting all loads.
  • Cost analyses are performed for each casing design.
  • Environmental considerations are given emphasis in both casing designs.
