Design Factor for Tubular Design

Tubular must be properly deigned to cover all anticipated load cases during the life of the well.  Engineers must select the appropriate tubular grade and weight, which will withstand the loads and be economic for the project. High grade to tubular can lead to excessive cost, which may not be economic viable. However, if the selected tubular is very close to the anticipated load, it might not be safe to operate the well. Therefore, engineers must fully understand the concept about design factors in tubular design.
