Determine contact forces of drill pipe’s tooljoint and body along the entire string using advanced soft and stiff string models.
Casing wear software description
Using our advanced Casing Wear module, you are able to validate that the casing will act as a competent element of the barrier system for the wells entire life-cycle.
Casing Wear is particularly critical in HP/HT wells where casing strings are subject to significant thermal and mechanical loads and stresses.
Casing wear is the removal of material from the ID of the casing while performing drilling, completion and workover operations. This removal is caused by the abrasive action of the D.Pipe tool joint and body.
For each operation, a complete historic of the side forces can be determined. Applying these forces the Hall wear model, as well as a sensitivity analysis on a set of wear factors the following values can be determined:
- Casing wall reduction % or mm,
- Minimum internal yield pressure
- Collapse resistance
- Location of highest casing wear
- Orientation of casing wear
