Centralizer Simulation

We operate the latest software to calculate optimum centralizer placement, casing standoff and torque and drag for all completion applications, including ERD or deviated wellbores.

Industry recognised simulation software CentraDesign calculates the centralizer placement, casing standoff and torque and drag.  It analyses and recommends the minimum number of centralizers to define string placement, considering stand-off criteria, torque or drag reduction requirements or optimum positioning due to high load areas.  The simulations can also accommodate flexibility in the calculations to consider “specified spacing” and “specified standoff” modes for different sections of casing/liner using either bow spring and / or rigid centralizers.

Centralizer simulations can account for and analyse:

  • 3D well path visualization
  • Casing floatation and air section length optimization
  • Torque and drag calculations
  • Casing deflection and centralizer compression
  • Latest casing bending models
  • Constant spacing, minimum stand-off or optimum designs
  • For each pipe, user can specify:
    • No centralizer
    • Constant spacing design
    • Minimum stand-off design
    • Optimum placement
  • Combination of spring-bow and rigid centralizers
  • Extensive tubular and centralizer database included
  • Tripping animation with drag / torque profiles
