This course introduces basic reservoir geomechanics concepts and methods to enable cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and experience. It provides the required input to help you understand questions crucial to the reservoir Geomechanics: How human activities of drilling, production and injection can affect the stress equilibrium in the reservoir at depth? How these changes in the stresses can create different problems? How can we drill without surprises? Where to place horizontal wells for better production? How and what completion methods can be used to optimise the production? What reservoir/field development plan is optimum for better production over reservoir lifecycle?
Course Structure: 3 modules of 4 hours each, delivered over 3 days Each day will consist of 1 module which will be no more than 4 hours in length with multiple breaks.
Course Level: Foundation Instructor: Manhal Sirat
