This results in the most conservative and costly design. The negative side of this approach is that large diameter casing. 167 2. Fixed end point design: the casing shoe set at injection pressure and the surface set at the rated working pressure of the surface equipment. 3. “Limited Kick Design”. This calculates the worst loads placed on a casing string by the largest influx kick taken in a particular area. The name derives from the “100 year storm” approach for facility design in offshore areas. The design kick may or may not actually reflect some real kick, but is more an approach to state the size load being designed for. 168 Copyright(c) 2005 by Ali Ghalambor & Boyun Guo 84 Fixed End Point Design The surface burst pressure limit is arbitrary, and is set equal to the rated working pressure of the surface equipment to be used.
