Geomechanics for Effective Shale Gas Exploitation


Geomechanics Fundamentals
Why is geomechanics important in unconventional reservoirs?
 What unconventional gas exploitation challenges can geomechanics can help solve?
 How can geomechanical analysis help with optimizing planning and operations?
 Rock Mechanics Basics - concepts of stress, strain, mechanical properties, static and dynamic, in-situ stresses, rock failure, pore pressure
Evaluation of Shale Heterogeneity
Characterizing shale from a geomechanical perspective - Petrography and XRD Shale anisotropy - microscopic to core to field scale - lateral variations from well-to-well
Evaluating TIV anisotropy, scratch testing and variation of mechanical properties in vertical and horizontal directions
Evaluation of shale heterogeneity - Tight Rock Analysis (TRA)
Geomechanics Data Sources and the Mechanical Earth Model
 Introduction to building Mechanical Earth Model (MEM)
 Estimating anisotropic parameters using acoustic azimuthal measurements
Understanding Wellbore stability in Shale
Hydraulic Fracturing and Monitoring
Geomechanics ¡V the key to designing an effective hydraulic stimulation
Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal completions in shale gas reservoirs
Introduction to microseismic and hydraulic fracturing monitoring (HFM)
