Downhole Material Selection

Downhole materials selection is one on the most debated topics during the well design process. A material selection that is too conservative can add substantial initial cost of the equipment. A material selection that is not conservative enough may cost substantially more in the long run due to equipment repair, downtime, and environmental and safety problems. Material selection is a problem that can safely be solved and implemented into a well design if there is thorough knowledge of the well environment, the available materials, the equipment, project requirements and load cases.
