High Temperature Collapse of Large Diameter Casing

The Industry Challenge

Collapse tests on 9-5/8” well casing specimens at 180°C show a marked decrease in collapse resistance. At present, testing facilities are not capable of testing larger diameter specimens that are representative of common well configurations at elevated temperatures.

The project would establish a high pressure (up to 40,000 psi), high temperature (up to 300°C) testing facility for large scale well casing and downhole equipment.
