This course covers the fundamentals of geomechanics for wellbore applications. It covers the topic of the origin of stresses in the subsurface and how in situ stresses can be understood from wellbore data. Mechanical properties such as rock strength and elastic properties are introduced and their determination in the laboratory as well as from log data is discussed. The origins of pore pressure and how it is measured and estimated is discussed and shown. The course then proceeds to show how all discussed concepts can be put together to build a Mechanical Earth Model and how this is used to examine critical problems in exploration and field development. Throughout the course the theoretical lectures are accompanied by practical exercises using the latest Schlumberger Techlog Geomechanics modules as well as pen-and-paper exercises.
At the end of the course attendees will be able to:
