This hands-on course will provide attendees with an overview of wellbore tubular deformation modes. Various wellbore applications (enhanced recovery, thermal, CHOPS and cavern storage) will be reviewed, along with an overview of some of the deformation mechanisms (permafrost thaw, salt creep and formation movement) and impacts on well integrity. Emphasis will be on the use of C-FER’s Multifinger Caliper (“MFC”) analysis software (Well Xplore™) to identify and characterize such deformations.
The objectives of this course are to review:
- Formation and operational mechanisms leading to wellbore tubular deformations
- MFC tool configuration and data collection best practices
- Tubular deformation diagnosis and quantification using MFC analysis software
- Erroneous data handling.
