This course presents theoretical concepts on the buckling behavoir of well tubing and its impact on well design and operations. Field examples are presented to determine the length of seals, packer-to-tubing forces, and the maximum stresses as a result of tubing movement.
This short course can be taught either at client location or in the Houston area. For additional information please contact us at   +1 (832) 295-1521 or info [at] BTechSoft [dot] com
