See the application of traditional pore pressure prediction methods in unconventional plays
Pore pressure prediction is a critical input to a geomechanical model, thus it has a key role to play in well planning, fracking optimisation, and maximising production. Most often a pore pressure model is based on mudweights (as direct measurements of pore pressure are not always taken) which can be misleading. Applying traditional pore pressure methods with a fresh approach can prove the difference in building an accurate pore pressure model.
