Casing & Tubular Design & Analysis

Maximizing customer value by using state-of-the-art modeling - obtaining both the right well integrity and the best cost configuration

Advanced engineering ensures unparalleled performance in every phase of drilling activity, maximizing customer value by optimal modeling of complex HP/HT conditions to plan the most appropriate casing and tubular design, while obtaining both the right well integrity and the best cost configuration.

WELLCAT software is a comprehensive and modular suite of applications that work together to address a wide variety of casing and tubing challenges.

Drillstring integrity – simulate fluid flow and heat transfer during drilling operations, for full transient analysis.

Casing Design – analyze single casing loads and buckling behavior under complex mechanical, fluid pressure, and thermal-loading conditions. Analyses may be performed in conjunction with the Drill Design and Prod Design modules (including tubingless configurations).

Production Design – simulate fluid flow and heat transfer during completion, production, stimulation, testing, and well-servicing operations.

Tubing and Connection Design – analyze tubing loads, fatigue and movements, buckling behavior and design integrity under complex mechanical, fluid-pressure, and thermal-loading conditions.

Multi-string Design – predict pressure and volume changes due to annular pressure buildup (APB) when the well system heats up as a result of production operations or the injection of hot fluids into the well.
