Casing Wear: Cause, Prediction and Prevention

Jun. 27, 2017, 11:30AM - 1:30PM


Industry-wide studies have allowed for a better understanding of casing wear. Casing wear occurs during the process of constructing a well, especially when tool joints rotate at high speeds for prolonged periods of time in areas of high side loading. If not prevented, results could be extreme, leading to burst or collapsed casing during completion, oil spills, or loss of wells. After years of rigorous consulting and field-testing, our casing wear software, CWPRO, has had a proven track record of successfully predicting and analyzing casing wear for individual wells. CWPRO reduces risks by identifying and preventing potential issues.

During our upcoming lunch and learn, the PVI team will expand on the impact of casing wear, methodologies for casing wear prediction, and appropriate modeling methods using computer-aided numerical analysis.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Variables that affect casing wear
  • Wear mechanics
  • How torque and drag affect casing wear
  • The impact of casing wear on burst and collapse ratings
