Unformatted text preview: an the source of the kick pressure less the gas hydrostatic at the surface casing shoe, the formation will fail, acting like a “pop value”, and the maximum burst loading on the surface casing will be as show in Fig.2b. 143 Fig.2a Fig.2b Copyright(c) 2005 by Ali Ghalambor & Boyun Guo 144 72 The load line is defined by the two end points. Injection Pressure at the casing shoe. Surface Press.= Inj.P – SD(Dg) (Eq.2) Continuous depositional basin conditions are to be assumed for illustration. In this geological environment, the lowest pressure possible behind the surface casing is the hydrostatic pressure of a full column of native fluid. In this case 0.465 psi/ft salt water(see Fig.3). In maximum load casing design, the backup pressures are always subtracted form the load pressure to determine the net load, called the resultant(Fig.4).
