The production casing is either run through the pay zone, or set just above the pay zone (for an open hole completion or prior to running a liner). The main purpose of this casing is to isolate the production interval from other formations (e.g. water bearing sands) and/or act as a conduit for the production tubing. Since it forms the conduit for the well completion, it should be thoroughly pressure tested before running the completion.
