Wellbore Tubulars: Reliability Based Design & Assessment

Reliability based design and assessment (RBDA) methods are used to make design and operational decisions that meet specified target reliability levels. The benefits of these methods include:

  • High, consistent and demonstrable safety levels;
  • Integration of design, construction and operational decisions to reach optimal life-cycle cost solutions;
  • Identification of key parameters that influence the system reliability; and
  • Ability to address unconventional and HPHT well designs using premium connections and high strength and/or high corrosion resistant materials.
