F005 Modelling the Evolution of Geological Structure – Influence of Compaction and Pore Pressure A.J.L. Crook* (Rockfield Software Limited) S.M. Willson (BP America Inc) & J.G. Yu (Rockfield Software Limited) SUMMARY Reconstruction of geological structures has the potential to provide additional insight into the effect of the depositional history on the current day geomechanical and hydrogeologic state. Accurate modeling of the reconstruction process is however complex necessitating advanced procedures for the prediction of fault formation and evolution within fully-coupled geomechanical fluid flow and temperature fields. This paper extends previous research focused on fault formation in bench-scale models to the field-scale.
