WEBINAR SERIES | Well Completion with Jonathan Bellarby
Casing design – using comprehensive load cases to ensure that the design is fit for purpose
Wednesday, May 12th CET 10:00 - 11:30 AM
Do you want to increase your in-depth knowledge of casing design and how you can optimize your designs using Oliasoft WellDesign?
In this free Webinar, Jonathan Bellarby will give you an introduction to casing design theory and how you can easily apply it by using Oliasoft WellDesign.
This is the second webinar of a 4-part webinar series with Jonathan Bellarby.
This second webinar will cover the following topics
- Quick run-through of setting up a casing design using Oliasoft WellDesign
- Introduction to yield, grade and stress theory
- Overview axial, burst, collapse and triaxial load cases with entry of standard and custom casing loads
- Overview of basic output including stresses and safety factors
By attending the webinar on May 12th, you will learn more about
- How to apply casing loads and which loads should be applied
- How to interpret the various casing load outputs
- Real-life example on production casing using Oliasoft WellDesign

The Oliasoft Casing Design Module
Along with Trajectory, Tubing Design, Drilling Mechanics and Blowout & Kill, Casing Design is an integrated module in the Oliasoft WellDesign package.
The Module offers full triaxial casing design compatible with NORSOK, ISO and API standards. The engine can handle point loads, anisotropy and asymmetry.
Oliasoft Casing Design has predefined load cases for all authority requirements, as well as generic load cases and options for custom loads. External loads and temperature profiles can be chosen for each load case.
All calculations integrate seamlessly with all other Oliasoft WellDesign modules and any connected third party applications. Adjustments to influential parameters anywhere in the calculation chain trigger automatic recalculation.
- Full triaxial casing design
- Advanced internal and external pressure profiles
- Full support for all custom load cases
- Safety factor for all dimensions
- Unlimited configuration options for packers and cement
- Automation through rule-based design
