Course description

Oilfield Casing

Casing is pipe that goes into the wellbore and stays in the well because the outside of the casing is cemented to the earth which provides wellbore integrity. In other words, casing’s primary purpose is to keep the wellbore from caving in or fracturing, to keep unwanted fluids from entering the wellbore, and to keep the desired fluids (hydrocarbons) from leaving the borehole at undesirable places.

In this module, you will study five topics:

  • The Drilling Process: This topic introduces the process of drilling an oil well, showing how casing, mud, and cement are used
  • API/ISO Standards: This topic overviews the naming conventions for casing. It explains how to identify casing by its properties
  • The Casing Manufacturing Processes: This topic introduces the two major methods of making casing, Seamless and Electric Resistance Weld (ERW). It explains the processes by which both types of casing are made, from generating the steel to the formation of the finished casing products
  • Casing Properties and Dimensions: This topic provides an in-depth explanation of each casing property. It describes, in detail, each dimension listed in the API/ISO naming convention
  • Casing Strings: This topic overviews the four casing strings—conductor, surface, intermediate, and production—and how these casing strings work together in an oil field well
