A complete multidisciplinary workflow that encompasses geophysics, geology and geomechanics (3G) has been developed to identify geological and geomechanical sweet spots under the same working environment, where data is easily transferable and comparable for effective analysis. The results are used for improved Engineering modeling such us completion design and reservoir dynamic simulation.
