Exploration and utilization often occur simultaneously in a single drilling effort – creating complex targeting plans. Ultimately, a full understanding of the subsurface is required that integrates all available data to drive decisions on where to place the well, how to stimulate it and what the likely production is to maximize return and achieve production targets. Integration is key, and value can only be realized through analysis of multiple data types across multiple disciplines, leading to more robust 1D geomechanical models that can have direct and timely impact on drilling and completion decisions. Ikon Science provides high quality, integrated rock physics models to build a deeper understanding of the seismic data using proprietary inversion techniques. These properties can all be integrated to develop a 3D rock mechanical volume to improve strategic and operational decisions ahead of the bit.
