Introduction
DEFINITION
Suspend
To hang casing strings by supporting their loads at
either 1 of 2 locations:
• Rig or platform
• Mudline (seafloor)

Function of Mudline Suspension


• Suspends casing loads at the mudline
– Why?
Rig / platform load rating insufficient to suspend
casing at the surface wellhead
– How?
Loads transferred from one casing string to the
previous casing string via shoulder-collet interface
• Allows for temporary abandonment & re-entry
(Vetco Gray MLC only)
