Practical Wellbore Stability Analysis


In this 1-day hands-on course, participants will learn how to carry out extensive wellbore stability analysis to help prevent wellbore failures, which can introduce costly non-productive time or even well abandonment. JewelSuite WellCheck will be used for carrying out the wellbore stability analysis. Other applications would be introduced to show how the geomechanical input data can be generated. Prerequisite: PRACTICAL WELLBORE GEOMECHANICAL & PORE PRESSURE MODELING

Topics include:

  • Data requirement for building wellbore stability analysis.
  • Introduction to JewelSuite PressCheck Geomechanical Modeling tool
  • Calibration of 1D geomechanical models using breakout and drilling induced fracture occurrence
  • Determination of safe mud window to avoid kick, wellbore collapse, and tensile failure of the well.
  • Determination of the optimal casing depth for wellbore stability
  • Evaluation of the optimal drilling directions using stereo-plots
  • Sensitivity analysis plots for decision making
  • Evaluation of bedding plane and temperature effects
  • Quantitative risk assessment of geomechanical data input

Target audience:

    This training course is designed for anyone interested in selecting the best well path, designing for stable well drilling and casing plan, and evaluating drilling risk before and during well drilling.
