Pore pressure prediction is essential for executing a safe and cost-effective drilling program. In addition to that, overpressure and the magnitude of overpressure also has a significant impact on the ability to artificially fracture shale formations as well as to increase the production drive of hydrocarbons and favor higher production rates.
The challenge to pore pressure prediction in unconventional shale plays is that conventional pore pressure prediction methodology, which relies on a predictable relationship between porosity and effective stress, is often not applicable in these plays due to TOC, clay mineral transformation, cementation, hydrocarbon generation and uplift.
In this webinar, we will highlight some of the issues related to pore pressure prediction in unconventional shale plays and explore potential solutions through a series of published case studies from unconventional shale plays and TOC-rich source rocks offshore.
