Unformatted text preview: aximum burst load results.
The source of the gas is the highest pressured
zone in the interval of hole below the surface
casing. This is total depth in some wells, the
intermediate casing point in others. See Fig.1. 140 Copyright(c) 2005 by Ali Ghalambor & Boyun Guo 70 Fig.1 141 There are two possibilities for the actual burst load line. The
pressure at which the formation at the casing shoe fails, will
determine which possibility to use. This injection pressure is
Where: Inj.P.= Injection Pressure (psi)
FG = Fracture Gradient at Weak point
In Open Hole Below Casing (ppg)
SF = Safety Factor- Enough Additional
Load To Insure Formation Will Fall (ppg)
SD = Setting Depth of Casing String(ft)
142 Copyright(c) 2005 by Ali Ghalambor & Boyun Guo 71 If the injection pressure is greater than the source
of the kick pressure less the gas hydrostatic at the
surface casing shoe, the burst load line will be as
shown in Fig.2a, and no underground blowout will
