Well Completion Design

Competency Statement:

Select the appropriate tubing and accessories for completing wells in keeping with the production method required for the reservoir, and to facilitate future workover, servicing and stimulation work.

Learning Objective:

Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to
  • select the proper sizes and grades of tubulars to maintain the integrity of the wellbore and handle anticipated production
  • select the downhole casing and tubing accessories needed to optimize production and future well work

Assignment Instruction:

Well 5A1-SW is currently in the planning stage. The well specifications established so far include target depth and radius, well profile, mud weight requirements, approximate casing points and formation evaluation needs.

In this assignment, you will work on the well's completion design. You will select the completion type and tubing configuration, specify the casing and tubing diameters to be used, and design the surface and production casing strings.

The success of your design will depend on how well it handles the anticipated production, compatibility of the various hole, casing and tubing sizes, adequacy of the casing design loads, and cost.
