I. introduction

Oil casing is an essential and important equipment in the process of oil and gas exploration and development. They are used to protect the wellbore, prevent wellbore collapse, isolate the pressure and fluid of different formations, and provide a passage for the extraction of oil and gas. There are different specifications and models of oil casing to adapt to different wellbore sizes and geological conditions. This article will introduce the application of oil casing through specific cases in detail.

II. Case One

In a well in Texas, USA, with a depth of over 4,000 meters, oil casing is widely used. Due to the complex geological conditions in this area, there are formations with high temperature and high pressure, so special materials made oil casing is needed to ensure the safety and stability of the well. In this case, the oil casing not only provides the support of the wellbore, but also isolates the pressure and fluid of different formations, effectively protecting the wellbore and drill bit. The specific model of the casing used is J55, with a specification of 139.7mm.

III. Case Two

In the North Sea oil field, the importance of oil casing is once again demonstrated. In this case, due to the deep water in the North Sea oil field, special underwater oil casing needs to be used for exploration and development. These casings are corrosion-resistant and high-pressure resistant, and can remain stable in harsh marine environments. In addition, the oil casing also provides an installation basis for the wellhead equipment, ensuring the smooth extraction of oil and gas. The specific model of the casing used is N80, with a specification of 177.8mm.

IV. Case Three

In the Middle East, oil casing is used in the application of horizontal drilling. In this case, the oil casing is installed in the inclined wellbore to ensure the smooth passage of the drill bit through the reservoir. In addition, the oil casing also provides support and protection to prevent wellbore collapse and drill bit damage. This case shows the flexibility and adaptability of the oil casing in the complex drilling environment. The specific model of the casing used is P110, with a specification of 244.5mm.

V. Case Four

In Xinjiang, china, oil casing is widely used in the exploration and development of the Tarim Basin. In this case, the oil casing is used in wells with a depth of more than 7,000 meters, facing high temperature, high pressure, and complex geological conditions. Through the use of high-strength oil casing and advanced drilling technology, the exploration and development work has been successfully completed, and important oil and gas discoveries have been made. The specific model of the casing used is Q125, with a specification of 339.7mm.

VI. Conclusion

From the above cases, it can be seen that oil casing plays a vital role in the exploration and development of oil and gas. They provide the support and protection of the wellbore, isolate the pressure and fluid of different formations, and ensure the safety and stability of the well. At the same time, the oil casing also provides a passage for the extraction of oil and gas, ensuring the effective development and utilization of oil and gas resources. With the continuous progress of technology and the continuous innovation of materials, the oil casing will continue to play an important role in the oil industry.
