Petrel Reservoir Geomechanics

This course introduces reservoir engineers and consultants to some basic concepts in geomechanics and the Petrel Reservoir Geomechanics software product and to illustrate how to incorporate data about geomechanical effects into reservoir models of well production behavior.

Apart from introducing the concepts of geomechanics, this training discusses the types of data used for geomechanical modelling in the petroleum industry, along with some of the geomechanical effects observed in oil and gas reservoirs and the subsurface during hydrocarbon production. The course discusses how to create reservoir models that show geomechanical effects such as pressure, stress, and strain, as well as data on reservoir flow, and to illustrate the effects over time and how to build reservoir geomechanical models using Petrel.

The training is structured to show you how to perform the following tasks:

  • Build 3D geomechanical reservoir models using Petrel.
  • Run geomechanical simulations using VISAGE* to compute stress, strain and displacements.
  • Couple the geomechanical models to reservoir simulations to show changes over time.
  • Demonstrate how the Petrel Geomechanics workflow can enhance results derived from other Schlumberger modeling products such as ECLIPSE* and INTERSECT*.

In addition, the training includes the execution of wellbore stability analysis within the 3D geomechanical model to optimize drilling trajectories and the safe mud weight window.
