The casing pipe, or well casing as some might call it, is a large-diameter pipe that serves as a support to strengthen the sides of oil or natural gas wellbore. It is installed inside a freshly drilled well and held into place by cement. The primary purpose of casing pipe is to prevent the top of the well from caving in as well as helps circulate the drilling fluid up from the bottom of the well, thereby facilitating well drilling and oil extracting.
During oil extraction, different types of well casings are used. The purpose of surface casing, for example, is to protect fresh water zone and shallow gas zone from oil or gas contamination. Another noteworthy device is the casing hanger, which is installed in the well head and hangs the casing.
The intermediate casing performs the function of minimizing the hazard of high pressure that comes along with different formations. High pressure may cause sever problems like abnormal drilling fluid flow rate and production pipe deformation. Using intermediate casing also comes with other benefits. It facilitates the installation of the pipe crack preventer, leak-proof device, and tail pipe.
The production casing is the deepest section of casing in the well. It provides a conduit from the surface of the well to the underground oil- or gas-producing formation. The outside diameter of the production casing usually measures from 114.3mm to 508mm.
Recent years of development has seen a wider application of our casing pipes, mainly in the oil line, natural gas line, coal gas line, electricity generating station, and reservoir.
The casing pipe provided by our company mainly uses seamless steel pipes as its raw material, though there are longitudinal welded pipes used for casing-making when large diameter and bespoke wall thickness are called for. Both ends of the casing will be cut to receive threads. One threaded end is connected to the casing collar while the other end is fitted with thread protector.
In other cases, different grade casing materials might be required by the customer. Correspondingly, we will use different casing collars. If measured by the strength of steel used to make the casing pipe, our product can be assigned to various grades including J55, K55, N80, L80, C90, T95, P110, and Q125.
