Practical Wellbore Geomechanical & Pore Pressure Modeling


This 1-day hands-on course shows participants how to build the base geomechanical model which includes pore pressure models. Participants will learn how to model rock mechanical properties, overburden stress, pore pressure, horizontal stresses and fracture gradient for offset wells and planned wells. JewelSuite PressCheck will be used to build the wellbore pore pressure and other geomechanical models. Participant will also learn how to constrain the maximum horizontal stress from observed wellbore failures, and how to validate geomechanical model from wellbore failures:

Topics include:

  • Data Requirement for Geomechanical Modeling/Pore pressure Prediction
  • Introduction to JewelSuite PressCheck Geomechanical Modeling tool
  • Rock Mechanical Property
  • Calculating Overburden Stress
  • Pore Pressure Modeling/Prediction
  • Modeling Horizontal stresses Fracture Gradient Modeling
  • Validating Geomechanical Model

Target audience:

    This training course is designed for anyone interested in building a base wellbore pore pressure model and other geomechanical models that can be used for wellbore and field geomechanical analysis and/or simulation: .
  • Drilling Engineers
  • Geomechanics Specialist
  • Earth Scientists
  • Reservoir Engineers
  • Geologists
  • Geophysicist
  • Completions Engineer
