Pore pressure prediction and evaluation processes rely on algorithms which can be influenced by pore pressure generation mechanisms. Using algorithms without knowing what the mechanism is, can result in calculated pore pressures being too high or too low, resulting in NPT or serious well control issues. This course will show you how understanding the pore pressure mechanism can result in higher confidence in pore pressure predictions and evaluation.
