This course covers the necessary fundamentals of reservoir geomechanics in a 3D environment; the origin of stresses in the subsurface and how in situ stresses could be understood using wellbore data, seismic and geological interpretations. Using the Finite Element Method, computed stresses and deformations could be calibrated against measurements, but moreover, changes in the in-situ stress state could be computed due to changes in reservoir pressures along with their impact on reservoir performance; mechanical properties such as rock strength, deformability and pore collapse, how they can be measured in the laboratory and translated into numerical modeling. The course then proceeds to show how these data are applied through building a 3D Mechanical Earth Model to critical problems in exploration and field development. There are detailed case studies on 3D and 4D reservoir geomechanics, showing the geomechanical influence of pressure changes in the reservoir. The course blends theoretical lectures with hands-on software training on the PetrelRG suite of software.
At the end of the course attendees will be able to:
Fundamentals of reservoir geomechanics
Reservoir geomechanics processes and introduction to PetrelRG
Geomechanical property modeling and stress initialization with PetrelRG
Coupled reservoir Geomechanics simulation with PetrelRG
Reservoir geomechanics model results analysis with PetrelRG
Geomechanicists, geologists, geophysicists, production engineers, completion engineers, reservoir engineers, and asset managers concerned with reservoir management, gas and / or water injection, EOR, HPHT field management and long-term reservoir forecasting. Ideally, a pair of geomodeller/geophysicist/geologist and reservoir engineer from an asset team to attend together.
