Course content

You will learn how to properly prepare core samples for laboratory experiments. Perform laboratory testing according to approved procedures. Get and analyze the results of a core study for geomechanical modeling.

Core research

During the course, you will gain practical skills in creating a 1D geomechanical model in the LithoStudio program. Learn to determine the mechanical properties and stress state of rocks based on logging data, reservoir tests and core studies.

1D geomechanics

You will become a specialist in geomechanical modeling. You will optimize models for hydraulic fracturing, prevent risks and evaluate uncertainties, create models with optimal parameters for wellbore stability.

Drilling optimization

Training program

8 modules — from basic geomechanics to 1D modeling
Get acquainted with the science of geomechanics: a complex discipline covering the issues of geology, geophysics, petrophysics, and mechanics. You will learn how to solve a wide range of applied problems at different stages of field development using geomechanics.
Module 1

Introduction to geomechanics course

Subject of study
History of development
Areas of use
Work examples
Learn to use core test data to calibrate a mechanical property model. Get a high-quality basis for 3D modeling.

Core. Types of core studies

Tensile strength (Brazilian test)
Bio coefficient
Internal friction angle
Construction of strength passports
Compressive strength
Static Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio
Conducting laboratory tests
Preparing core samples for the experiment
Module 2
You will be able to evaluate the quantity, quality and, if necessary, reject all transmitted geological and geophysical information, which will later be used to build a geomechanical model.
Module 3

Preparing data for geomechanical modeling

Correlation dependencies application
Preliminary stress assessment
Generating calibration information
Well logging data preparation methods
Initial information analysis
You will receive information on determining the prevailing stress regime to determine the required pressure gradient, direction and understanding of the complexity of the hydraulic fracture network created.
Module 4

Stress-strain state of rocks

Choosing the most stable well trajectory
Determining the directions of stresses
Conditions for the formation of technogenic fractures and falls
Tectonic regimes
Anderson concept
You will learn how to build a 1D geomechanical model: selection of the optimal drilling fluid density, forecasting of instability zones, potential drilling accidents and AHRP zones with a complex geological structure of the object under study.
Module 5

1D geomechanical modeling

Modeling of elastic and strength properties
Calibration to core data
Stress state calculation
Minimum horizontal stress calibration
Formation mechanisms and prediction of AHPV
Pore pressure
Overburden pressure
Building a mechanical facies model
You will receive the necessary foundation for planning drilling and hydraulic fracturing (HF) — learn how to calculate continuous profiles of the elastic-strength characteristics of rocks, as well as the stress state of a rock mass.
Module 6

Geomechanics for hydraulic fracturing optimization

Deviations and overhangs of fractures
Deformation and fluid leakage
Stress magnitude and proppant behavior
Dimensions and geometry of hydraulic fracturing
Burst pressure and fracture closure pressure
Hydraulic fracturing curvature in the bottomhole zone of well
General fracturing direction
You will learn how to forecast risks and assess uncertainties. The results of a 1D geomechanical model are influenced by many parameters. The use of low-quality input and calibration data or their absence entails obtaining an error in the geomechanical model.
Module 7

Drilling recommendations

Recommendations for minimizing uncertainties
Uncertainty analysis of input parameters
Building a risk map
You will learn how to use the results of sand analysis to predict safe drawdown, select the optimal completion system, determine safe perforation intervals, optimize well trajectory and well placement.
Module 8

Wellbore stability for estimating sand production

Mining recommendations
Well completion recommendations
Recommendations for best drilling practices
Definitions of possible sand intervals
