Abstract

Summary

Geomechanics for unconventional reservoirs. Geomechanical properties of the subsurface greatly influence both the drilling and hydraulic fracturing of a well in an unconventional reservoir. A MEM is an estimate of the subsurface mechanical properties, rock strength, pore pressure, and stresses, and can be used to quantify the geomechanical behavior of the subsurface. These components in the MEM are described in this presentation, with an emphasis on applications to developing unconventional reservoirs.
