Geomechanics play an important role in reservoir engineering studies, and in the successful exploitation and development of unconventional reservoirs. Using fully coupled/coupled 3D reservoir models to simulate fracturing processes, we help you understand:

  • Fracture creation and propagation
  • Fracture closure
  • Stress alterations
  • Fracture interference
  • Stress sensitive formation properties
  • Formation properties anisotropy
  • Natural fracture interactions with hydraulically induced fractures and propagation
  • Stimulated reservoir volume
  • Cap rock integrity
  • Shallow depth fracturing
  • Water-induced fracturing
  • Waste disposal injection
  • CO2 sequestration
  • Laboratory measured rock mechanics data 
  • Compaction and surface subsidence

Additionally, geomechanical modeling helps to maximize production in critically stressed and high density fault regions. Wellbore stresses can be identified in finite element models to quantify the strength of the wellbore, and to determine breakouts helpful in solving well stability issues.

Our geomechanical modeling uses proprietary numerical models, both finite element models for stress solutions with customized codes for each project, and coupled reservoir and geomechanical models for rock stress analysis.
