Applied Geopressure Course
This course will provide in-depth practice of geopressure concepts, measurements, prediction, analysis, risk and appraisal.
Review and learn about:
- Causes , concepts and definitions of geopressure
- The tools, techniques and tests used for direct and indirect measurements, QC and calibration
- Different prediction methods, mainly based on effective stress
- Techniques used for predictions pre-drilling, during drilling and after drilling
- QC petrophysical properties adequate for pore pressure predictions, especially seismic velocity
- Supra-sub salt pressure models, fault sealing, trap sealing and retention capacities
- Applications for exploration, exploitation, and drilling, including compartmentalization, post drilling appraisal, and risk assessment
- Several case histories from the Gulf of Mexico will be discussed during this course.
