This intensive course and has been specifically designed for Intermediate Level casing designers. This takes delegates through the key drivers behind casing design for exploration, appraisal and development wells and their associated risks, challenges and solutions.
The course learning outcomes are:-
- To enable delegates to understand the most important aspects of and key drivers behind both standard and Intermediate Level casing design.
- To enable delegates to be able to carry out casing design from both a calculation methodology and graphical analysis methodology.
- To enable delegates to know what goes on inside ‘black box’ software casing programs.
Presentation material is through the use of detailed Manuals, PowerPoint, Design Calculations (& Graphical Analysis), case histories, videos and digital film.
