Well Design


Define basic well design parameters, including well profile, casing points and casing/hole diameters. Design casing strings and outline cementing requirements. Select surface equipment components. Generate preliminary cost estimates for inclusion in AFE. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: select a surface location for a new well and establish an optimal target radius, pick casing points and specify casing and hole diameters for each drilled section, establish a well trajectory in keeping with overall drilling objectives, select casing weights, grades and connections based on consideration of maximum load conditions, determine general requirements for primary cementing operations, and specify wellhead equipment components and their working pressure ratings.
