Fractured Reservoir Analysis
By knowing critically stressed fracture orientations, you can intersect the maximum number of permeable fractures with optimized well trajectories. By exploiting the relationship between in-situ stress and permeability, we can improve production in your fractured reservoirs.
Our experts offer better well decisions through field-specific geomechanical models. These models allow you to detect variations in stress magnitudes affecting permeable fracture sets, optimize drilling direction to intersect zones and enhance permeability, and characterize variations in fracture attributes in adjacent fault blocks.
Optimize well trajectories
The fundamental data for optimizing reservoir drainage begin with wellbore images. With our GMI•Imager™, we characterize and classify natural fractures and faults for measurements of orientation, distribution, and apparent aperture.
These processes make your critical well-planning decisions easier so you can optimize design and drill for the permeable zones with the confidence to improve hydrocarbon production.
