For the previous topic, Hydraulicing Casing (pressure to lift the casing while cementing), you already know the concept. This topic will demonstrate you how to figure out if the casing will be hydraulically lifted while pumping cement.
Casing 9-5/8”, 40 ppf (pound per foot), ID of casing = 8.835”
Casing is set at 3,200’MD/3,000’TVD
Top of cement at 600’MD/550’TVD
Previous casing shoe (13-3/8”) = 1000’MD/900TVD
Cement weight = 14.0 ppg
Mud weight = 9.5 ppg
Displacement fluid weight (Brine) = 8.4 ppg
What is the condition at the static condition after cement in place?
What is the maximum pressure that we can apply before the casing is hydraulically pumped out of the well?
