WEBINAR SERIES | Well Completion with Jonathan Bellarby 

Understand and use temperature
simulation for tubing and casing design 

Wednesday, June 23rd CET 10:00 - 11:30 AM

Do you want to increase your in-depth knowledge of temperature influence and changes in well designs and how you can integrate thermal simulations into your casing design by using Oliasoft WellDesign? 

In this free Webinar, Jonathan Bellarby will give you an introduction to tubing design and temperature simulation theory and how you can easily apply it by using Oliasoft WellDesign. 

This is the fourth and last webinar of a 4-part webinar series with Jonathan Bellarby.

This fourth webinar will cover the following topics 

  • Introduction to temperature simulations and the purpose of performing such simulations. 
  • Demonstration of how to set up and perform various temperature simulation operations in WellDesign. 
  • How to set up relevant tubing and casing loads based on these simulations. 
  • Overview of completion design in Oliasoft including packer designs. 

By attending the webinar on June 23rd, you will learn more about

  • Which thermal simulations you need to perform and what input factors are critical for both casing and tubing design. 
  • How to interpret the results from the temperature simulation engine. 
  • How to interpret the completion and packer load results.
  • Real-life example on production casing using Oliasoft WellDesign.

Oliasoft WellDesign’s Tubing Design module  

Along with Trajectory-, Casing-, Drilling Mechanics and Blowout & Kill, the Tubing Design module is an integrated module in the Oliasoft WellDesign package. 

The Oliasoft Tubing Design Module is built on an advanced finite volume thermal simulator able to calculate temperature and pressure development for every well configuration. 

The Module supports multistring analysis – including wellhead growth and annular fluid expansion – ensuring analysis of advanced temperature effects of dynamic systems compliant with all industry standards. 

These simulations integrate with the functionality of the rest of the Oliasoft WellDesign suite, adjustments in other modules triggering re-calculations that update tubing design calculations automatically. 

Key Features

  • Transient temperature and pressure simulation of production, injection, circulation and shut-in scenarios 
  • Multi-string analysis including annular fluid expansion and wellhead growth 
  • Simulation for unlimited number of nested operations 
  • Packer loads on tubing and casing 
  • Multiphase flow correlations 
  • Automatic phase envelope generation from PVT specifications
