Casing & Tubing Design (Basic)

A comprehensive insight to casing and tubing design with cost optimization tools to converge on best fit pipe size, weight, grade, material and connection type. Industry leading commercial software (StressCheck) is used to impart the training covering every element of the casing and tubing design process.

Detailed AgendaUpcoming CoursesPre-requisites
