Drill String Design

Course Purposes

The course provides a comprehensive treatment of drill string design as well as the avoidance of operational problems and wear on equipment following the API recommended practices for design and operating limitations as well as the standard DS1 for design and inspection.

Course Objectives:

By the end of this course the participant will be able to
  •   Place the drill string design process in context with other planning and operational considerations
  •  Refresh underlying physics of drill string failures and mechanical properties of drill string materials
  •   Clarify performance properties of drill string components and how to apply design margins
  •   Design cost-effective BHAs and match them to your bit
  •   Gain specific application experience analyzing common load cases for both near-vertical and high-angle situations: tension loads, torque loads, combined tension-torque loads, fatigue loads, buckling loads
  •   Understand the basis for industry software design tools, including torque and drag, casing wear, and hydraulics
  •   Identify drilling tools and operational practices to reduce both torque and drag and casing wear
  •   Diagnose and mitigate vibration to reduce drill string damage and failure
  • Optimize your drill string inspection program using the latest industry standards
