Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Online Training Course?

This Petroknowledge Oil & Gas Technology online training seminar on Advanced Casing Design covers the relevant subjects required to understand the structural mechanics of down hole tubular. Material aspects, connection selection, performance properties, load cases, design factors, and buckling are just a few of the many topics that are covered.

This Petroknowledge online training seminar is designed to concentrate on the fundamentals, takes delegates through the key drivers behind casing design for exploration, appraisal and development wells and their associated risks, challenges and solutions. This introduces manufacture techniques, specifications, loading, design, and problems of casing strings. This helps attendants to understand casing techniques and the know-how of the casing strings.

This Petroknowledge Advanced Casing Design online training course also provides explanations and examples of all the aspects of oilfield tubular design. Both uniform and non-uniform loading is covered. Combination loading considerations are envisioned and design procedures are outlined and practiced. Design of tubulars for use in a corrosive environment is new addition.

Participants will be able to design casings for any well: onshore, offshore, high pressure and high temperature wells, horizontal and multilateral wells.

This Petroknowledge online training seminar will feature:

  • Understand the main functions, characteristics and different type of casing
  • Understand the geometric characteristics and properties of casing, and how these can affect performance
  • Appreciate the requirements for casing seat selection with regard to subsurface information

What are the Goals?
