    Techlog Geomechanics - (Remote Instructor-Led Series)

    This course is a Remote Instructor Led Series, RILS training that is delivered online with no face-to-face classroom attendance. The course is design for 5 days with a delivery of 4hrs per day. 

    The Techlog Geomechanics course covers the fundamental theory of geomechanics for pore pressure, 1D mechanical earth model (MEM) construction, wellbore stability & completion geomechanics applications using Techlog* wellbore software platform on real examples.

    The course presents pore pressure prediction concepts using the effective stress method (Eaton, Bowers, Traugott). The steps to build a MEM, which is comprised of computing dynamic & static elastic properties, rock strength properties and the orientation & magnitudes of the horizontal stresses, are introduced.  The theory of wellbore stability theory is discussed in detail which covers the concepts of rock failure, thermal stresses, depth of damage and failure image prediction. Using multiple exercise, participants build a calibrated mechanical earth model with Techlog, construct a mud weight window, and identify drilling hazards.  Completion Geomechanics introduces a workflow which provides input for sand management decisions (optimized drawdown pressure, perforation orientation & size etc). The fracture stability module provides a workflow which allows critical stress analysis of fractures and faults considering the effect of depletion & injection.

    • A laptop or desktop computer connected to the internet
    • Two monitors or one monitor and a tablet.
