    Completions design - Stress/movement analysis

    This course will focus on completion Design, both from an engineering and an operation perspective. Design concepts will be covered for a wide range of straightforward, as well as hostile environments. The course will examine the nomenclature of completion design, manufacturing processes, material properties and material selection. The theory of burst, collapse, and axial loading will be discussed, along with design policies and procedures. Important API specifications and other industry standards will be discussed in order for the participants to become familiar with these documents. Connection and special cases, including HPHT and sour service, will be covered.

    A significant part of the course will involve exercises and self-paced (homework) activities which may be completed outside the classroom schedule. Participants should have a personal calculator and access to a computer with TDAS (Tubular Design & Analysis Software) software program (Trial license for TDAS will be provided).

    This course will be delivered in a class driven process. The instructor, along with the participants, will team together to set the pace of learning. Lectures interspersed with classroom discussion and exercises will be used to ensure understanding and integration of concepts needed to evaluate potential service requirements, give recommendations, and select the appropriate tubulars.
