Casing Failure Prevention

Even the best casing design can fail without proper specification, inspection, and handling. We created Casing Failure Prevention to provide you the tools to address these key areas before you set your casing. Learn to go beyond design to dramatically reduce the risk of high-cost casing failures.


Failure Recognition

  • Tension- and pressure-related failures
  • Other important failure types
  • Three areas that must work to prevent failures: Manufacturing, Design, and Installation


Manufacturing

  • Material properties (and why they’re important for the casing designer)
  • Manufacturing processes that affect the end result
  • API’s Spec 5CT—the industry-standard for OCTG manufacturing


Material Selection (Design I)

  • API- and proprietary pipe grades
  • Concerns related to sour- and corrosive service
  • High-collapse casing grades—capacity ratings and use
  • How to mitigate the effects of casing wear


Inspection (Design II)

  • How certain thread-gauging practices can cause leaks
  • Strengths and weaknesses of flaw-detection methods
  • How to gain confidence that your inspection is good


Connections (Design III)

  • Understanding API connections’ features and limitations
  • Proprietary connection features and the problems they’re intended to solve
  • Popular modifications to the API connection design


Installation

  • Preventing handling damage
  • The causes and fixes for galling
  • Which makeup method is best
