Well Engineering Training Courses

Listed below are some of the Well Engineering training courses available from Welltrain.   Courses can always be tailored to meet your specific needs; in terms of location, timing and technical content

Introduction to Casing and Tubing Design

Classroom based with / without Casing Design Software (e.g. Stresscheck)

Suitable for: Well Engineers (Graduate / Entry Level)

Designed for an Engineer with a working knowledge of drilling operations, this course introduces the participant to all elements of Casing Design.   The course includes:

  • Functions of Casing
  • Casing Seat Selection and Kick Tolerance
  • Oilfield tubular manufacturing and tolerances (API Spec 5CT / ISO 11960)
  • Strength of Tubulars (API Bulletin 5C3 and ISO/TR 10400)
  • Design and Safety Factors
  • Pressure and mechanical loads
  • API Biaxial collapse and triaxial burst calculations
  • Material Selection (incl ISO 15156 – Materials for use in Sour Service)
  • Casing Wear and Corrosion - prediction, mitigation and assessment
