This course focuses on casing design, both from engineering and an operational perspective. Design concepts are provided for a wide range of straightforward and hostile environments. It examines the nomenclature of casing design, manufacturing processes, materials and properties. The theory of burst, collapse and axial loading is discussed along with design policies and procedures. A thorough review of API specifications is performed along with a review of the theory behind these specifications and their limitations. Connections and special cases, including HPHT and sour service are discussed. A significant part of this course involves exercises and may involve self-paced activities (home work) outside the classroom schedule. Students should have a personal calculator and access to a computer with a spreadsheet software program and know how to enter formulas in the spreadsheet software.
