By Ted G. Byrom
Once considered area of interest expertise, operators at the present time are using extra possibilities with casing and liners as formations and environments develop in trouble, in particular with the radical oil and fuel increase. Casing and liners for Drilling and Completions, 2d version offers the engineer and good dressmaker with up to date details on severe homes, mechanics, layout fundamentals and most up-to-date purposes for today’s form of good. Renovated and simplified to hide operational concerns, strain rather a lot, and choice steps, this instruction manual delivers the data to execute the fundamental and basic positive aspects of casing and liners. Bonus gains include:
- Additional word list further to give an explanation for oil box terminology
- New appendix on invaluable on a daily basis formulation corresponding to axial pressure, shear pressure in tubes and critical tension components
- Listing component of acronyms, notations, symbols and constants for fast reference
- Concise step by step uncomplicated casing layout method with examples
- Thorough insurance and tips about very important box perform for deploy subject matters
- Advanced equipment 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

2 A minifracture test for borehole stability analysis. Casing depth and size determination 23 and the observed “dissipation” behavior was achieved by opening a valve at the surface to affect a bleed-off. Some knowledge and experience is necessary to conduct such a test. Even a poorly done test should give an accurate fracture pressure even if the closure pressure is botched. Fortunately the fracture closer pressure, if missed, can be easily determined by slowly reapplying pressure. 1 Notice that I have not yet mentioned point A in this test.
When a well is stimulated or squeeze cemented through perforations using a retrievable squeeze tool or cement retainer, often times the formation must be fractured to initiate pump in. The collapse problem arises from the fact that whenever we fracture a formation through perforations we have no idea where the fluid is going in the annulus. We like to assume that there is good cement and the fracture takes place in the perforations, but that is not always the case. If there is a channel such that the casing above the packer experiences the fracture pressure it is possible that the casing could collapse above the treatment packer or retainer.
It is often the case that we know the gas pressure at a source depth but need the value of the pressure in a gas column at another depth. This is not the same simple hydrostatic calculation we use for incompressible liquids because gas is compressible, and hence, its gradient is not a constant. There are a number of approaches for calculating natural gas pressures using the ideal gas law and compressibility factors. The compressibility factor is itself a function of temperature, pressure, and gas composition.
