Can a Bigbore DrilQuip Wellhead skip a casing string?
24 June 2017
We have to use a big bore Drilquip wellhead due to conductor stability reasons.
Is there a way if we can skip one of the casing string.

Well the wellhead was inherited.

Many Thanks

I have spoken to DrilQuip about it. I was told that we could insert a Swage connection the high pressure housing which is on a 20" to 13-3/8". But my other question is the 20" Cross-over does not have burst strength which makes it a weak link. Has anybody used this setup before.
