Casing and Liners for Drilling and Completion, Second by Ted G. Byrom

By Ted G. Byrom

Once considered area of interest expertise, operators this present day are using extra possibilities with casing and liners as formations and environments develop in hassle, particularly with the radical oil and gasoline increase. Casing and liners for Drilling and Completions, 2d version offers the engineer and good clothier with up to date details on severe homes, mechanics, layout fundamentals and most modern functions for brand new kind of good. Renovated and simplified to hide operational concerns, strain a lot, and choice steps, this instruction manual offers the data to execute the basic and basic positive factors of casing and liners. Bonus positive factors include:

  • Additional word list additional to provide an explanation for oil box terminology
  • New appendix on helpful each day formulation akin to axial rigidity, shear rigidity in tubes and important rigidity components
  • Listing part of acronyms, notations, symbols and constants for fast reference
  • Concise step by step uncomplicated casing layout strategy with examples
  • Thorough insurance and pointers on very important box perform for deploy subject matters
  • Advanced tools for serious and horizontal good casing layout together with hydraulic fracturing
  • Exhaustive appendices on foundational subject matters: devices & nomenclature, reliable mechanics, hydrostatics, borehole atmosphere & rock mechanics, and a precis of beneficial formulation

Sample text

Circulation fluid, usually drilling fluid, is pumped slowly into the well at a constant rate. Point B on the chart is the maximum pressure and is the fracture pressure of the formation. The pressure immediately drops a bit and levels off as pumping continues at the same rate. This is the fracture propagation pressure. The fracture propagates at a lower pressure than the initial fracture pressure because the fluid entering the fracture now acts as a wedge with a distinct mechanical advantage in opening the fracture to allow growth at the tip.

API 8-rd connections The most common type of casing connection in use is the API 8-rd connection, where 8-rd means 8-round or eight threads per inch and a slightly rounded profile. The profile is a V or wedge shape but slightly rounded at the crest and valleys of the threads. 5-V thread, which has 11-1/2 threads per inch and a sharp V-profile. This typically is a line pipe thread and is seldom used in down-hole applications today. The API 8-rd connection is made in either ST&C (short thread and coupling) or LT&C (long thread and coupling).

And the threads used in that calculation are an obsolete thread that is no longer manufactured. In other words, casing almost never weighs the same as its nominal weight. Fortunately, the difference is small enough that in most cases of casing design, it is relatively insignificant. API Spec 5CT [5] has formulas for calculating the actual weight of a joint, but it requires specification of the thread dimensions, and so forth, and we are not going to concern ourselves with that here. 989 should be applied.
