Swab Considerations-Expressed in ppg EMW. 2. Surg Consideration-Expressed in ppg EMW. 3. Safety Factor-Expressed in ppg EMW. 4. Kick Size-Expressed in ppg EMW. 5. Gain Margin-The gain margin is the secondary contributor to kick load at the casing seat. 6. Allowable ΔP Opposite Normal or Subnormally Pressured Zones-Expressed in psi. 7. Allowable ΔP Opposite Abnormal High Formation Pressures-Expressed in psi. 239 Formation Pressure and Fracture Gradient Projection With the formation pressure versus depth information, fracture gradients can be determined. Procedure Sequence It is planned from the bottom up. The first casing point established is for the deepest string of casing which will be drilled beneath. 240 Copyright(c) 2005 by Ali Ghalambor & Boyun Guo 120 Deepest Setting Point Established The deepest casing point is selected by identifying a tentative casing point and then perfecting that point to satisfy all criteria: Maximum Anticipated Formation Pressure To Total Depth= +Swab Considerations (Design Cri...
