This course introduces attendees to the fundamental concepts underpinning any geomechanical study such as rock properties, the relationship between stress and strain, sources of stress and the components of a full stress tensor.
Techniques for estimating rock properties and the stress components are presented with related data requirements. Geomechanical implications for the petroleum industry are discussed and methods for assessing geomechanical risks of wellbore instability, fault seal integrity and sand production are addressed.
This course is designed for anyone involved in petroleum related exploration or well planning without detailed geomechanical experience.
