One 4D Geomechanical Model and its Many Applications

We present a case study of model building, calibration and application of a 4D geomechanical flow model. Model building uses seismic inversion volumes to constrain a geological facies model, followed by upscaling to a reservoir simulation model and history matching. Similarly a 3... Read More.


Monitoring wells in real-time using depth- and time-based data

During drilling, abrupt or unexpected changes in pore pressure and wellbore stability can cause substantial problems leading to costly drilling delays, unsafe incidents and potential loss of data or the well. Monitoring the state of a well in real time during drilling is critical... Read More.
