Get greater insight into the key role of geomechanical effects across the development and production cycle
Petroleum geomechanics provides insight to the mechanical properties and behavior of the subsurface, which influence the exploration, development and production of oil and gas. This includes reservoir-scale phenomena, such as faulting and fracture development, production-related compaction and subsidence, and induced faulting and seismicity. It also includes wellbore-scale phenomena, such as wellbore stability, hydraulic fracturing, formation/casing interaction during production, sand production and waste injection. Beyond oil and gas, geomechanics also has an important role to play in geothermal and carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) projects.
