Predicting pore pressure is critical in the well-planning process to reduce NPT. Pore-pressure prediction without in-situ stress analysis offers only half the answer. Our geomechanics knowledge completes the picture by combining seismic data and geomechanical modeling to address wellbore stability and drilling performance for enhanced wellbore placement.
We offer full-service pore-pressure prediction support with expertise that includes log-based trendline methods, pore-pressure prediction from seismic velocity data, and superior geomechanics.
Capitalize on log-based data
Our experts use sophisticated data manipulation tools to calculate pore pressure from wireline or LWD data in a way that affirms data quality and computational accuracy.
Smart use of seismic velocity
We help to derive pore pressure from seismic velocities. If offset data are not available, we construct an initial geomechanical model from this seismic pore pressure to predict wellbore stability, optimize drilling performance, and improve well design. The resulting model can be refined and updated in real time. Visualization of 2D and 3D results enables solid insight into premium well locations and trajectories.
Access the industry's most advanced analyses
Our experts determine the overpressure generation mechanisms in your reservoir and apply appropriate advanced geomechanical methods of pore-pressure analysis to fully understand your wellbore's stability, including effective stress, unloading, average stress, lateral transfer, buoyancy, and centroid techniques.
