Casing Selection Strategy to Overcome Buckling Generation and Influences on Cement Quality in Vertical Wells

Abdeslem Leksir

Volume 11, Issue 3 , July 2022, Pages 1-22

  Column final tests face new challenges, and in addition to casing burst/collapse limitations, buckling occurrence creates serious problems. In case of a slight gap between mud and slurry densities, buckling initiation is inevitable. Casing elongation, bending, and buckling are detailed to define column ...  Read More
