Casing Wear Prediction and Allowance for Montney and Duvernay Wells

Please join us on Thursday December 1, 2016 where we will have a discussion on new software methods to predict and prepare for casing wear, using Montney and Duvernay wells as case study examples.


Drill pipe wear on intermediate casing landed in or below the build section of horizontal wells has led to unplanned deployment of tie back strings to complete fracturing operations. In some cases there will be insufficient remaining burst capability to safely finish drilling the well. The window for intermediate casing wear allowance may as little as 1 to 2 days when drilling over-pressured formations.

Newly-released casing wear prediction software can now integrate with casing wear allowance software. This presentation will demonstrate the accuracy of casing wear prediction when matched to actual wear data obtained by ultrasonic logs on a Duvernay well. The impact of well path tortuosity on casing wear will also be discussed.

Mark Woitt is a Senior Completions Specialist at RPS Energy. Mark has over 30 years of well construction and completion experience. Approximately half of that time was spent in the field working in the completion tool business. He now works in (out of) the Calgary office primarily on HPHT well construction projects internationally. The majority of the work performed in Canada over the last 8 years has been casing design for multi-fractured horizontal wells and well integrity modeling of all types of injection wells.
