Casing design is an integral part of a drilling engineer's work scope. This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the design process, emphasizing the working stress approach currently used in the industry. Upon completion, participants will be able to select casing points, identify tubular requirements, loads, and present a design which incorporates life cycle considerations. Estimation of standard and special loads is covered in detail. Standard theories of strength and failure are discussed as well as advanced considerations for combined loads. Topics related to safe handling, running and hanging practices will additionally be covered.
Engineers, site supervisors, and technical managers responsible for casing design and/or review of the casing design for the full life cycle of the well. Participants should have at least one year of drilling-related experience AND be in a role that requires that they perform a detailed casing design.
You Will Learn:
ILT = Virtual instructor-led online session
OL = Self-paced online learning activity
EX = Online exercises through SNAP software (included with course)
-Optional ILT Session: Creating Detailed Design for Portfolio Well
MR. JAMES E. BOBO retired from ConocoPhillips as a Principle Drilling Engineer. Mr. Bobo has served in various management and project leadership roles in drilling, production, gas processing, and gas gathering and information systems throughout the basins in the lower 48 states. In addition, he has served in key facilitator roles for well control operations in Papua New Guinea, Nova Scotia and high-pressure/high-temperature operations throughout the lower 48 states. Bobo is actively involved in society-level efforts related to continuing education, licensure, and professional development, along with the technical advisory boards for several universities. He earned his BS degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Tulsa.
MR. DAVID M. TUBBS has over 39 years of industry experience predominantly in oilfield operations. He has worked in most major basins of the United States, Central and Northern North Sea and the North Atlantic. He started his career in 1980 with Standard Oil of Ohio (Sohio) and continued with BP after the merger. From there David worked a variety of roles with Louisiana Land and Exploration (LL&E), Burlington Resources, and Leor Exploration before starting his consulting career with his own firm Liam Engineering LLC. David has extensive experience in all types of drilling, completion, and workover operations, particularly HPHT/sour service drilling and floating drilling. He oversaw the drilling of Burlington's Deep Bossier field development in East Texas and implemented a 'slim-hole' drilling program utilizing expandable tubulars which saved over $1MM per well. Prior to this role he was the Burlington project manager for the construction of the Ensco 7500. He oversaw the procurement and factory acceptance testing of most of the primary equipment purchased for the rig. As an independent consultant he has enjoyed working a wide variety of areas including horizontal drilling and completions in addition to exploration/appraisal drilling in central Idaho. David graduated with high honors from New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in May 1980 with a BS in Petroleum Engineering. He is a member of SPE and a registered professional engineer in Texas.
