This course covers the necessary fundamentals of geomechanics for wellbore applications; 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 the origins of pore pressure and how it is measured and estimated. The course then proceeds to show how these data are applied through the Mechanical Earth Model to critical problems in exploration and field development. There are detailed case studies on wellbore stability sand production and hydraulic fracturing. The course also includes an introduction to reservoir geomechanics, showing the geomechanical influence of pressure changes in the reservoir.

At the end of the course attendees will be able to:

  • Use routinely collected and specialized data to make basic geomechanical calculations for wellbore stability, sand production and hydraulic fracturing
  • Select and design data acquisition for geomechanical studies
  • Interpret image data to identify basic geomechanical behaviour

This course is also available as a 3 day class without classroom exercises

This course teaches the fundamentals of Petroleum System Analysis (PSA) with an emphasis on deepwater applications. PSA is a relatively new specialization in the field of Petroleum Geology: it investigates the generation of hydrocarbons in the subsurface and tries to reconstruct the filling history of existing oil and gas accumulations with the aim to quantify the charge risk of undrilled prospects. Deepwater environments present the petroleum system analyst with a number of specific challenges, as source rocks are typically beyond the reach of the drill bit and oil-to-source rock correlations are complicated by oil transformation processes such as remigration and biodegradation. After a 3 day introduction of the fundamentals of PSA, case histories from the Gulf of Mexico, offshore West Africa and the Mediterranean are discussed. Special attention is given to geochemical well evaluations, which form an essential part of PSA, not only in the Deepwater environments but also for the evaluation of unconventional hydrocarbons such as Shale Gas and Basin Center Gas.
