Our geomechanics experts, who have worked around the world, will help you minimize cost and optimize the reservoir life cycle. Our approach constrains the magnitudes of each principal stress in a fashion that forces consistency with the laws of rock physics, of the earth’s crust, and with historical field experience. By imposing this type of rigor, we can derive geomechanical models with the accuracy needed to make predictions that are robust enough to base well designs and reservoir depletion plans on those predictions with confidence.
Credentialed, seasoned, and published like few of their peers, our team can help you make better decisions – so that you can reduce the risk of unexpected drilling costs, improve production with smarter decisions, and boost your overall recovery on every project. We take the guesswork out of well planning, drilling, production and completion challenges with an exceptional combination of skills and tools for each phase of the asset.
Our geomechanical analyses offer drilling options that optimize wellbore stability during drilling in the overburden and in the reservoir for reduced downtime.
Knowing the orientation of permeable fractures lets you optimize well trajectories to intersect the maximum number of permeable fractures.
Our better finite-element modeling, based on methodology developed by Statoil, delivers superior sand-production predictions.
We perform specialized wellbore imaging analysis, such as fracture and fault orientation, sedimentary dip, and reservoir thicknesses to improve production.
We use stress field knowledge with fault mapping from seismic data to understand reservoir compartmentalization for improved production.
