Applied Geomechanics in the E&P Industry: Best Practices and Recent Technological Developments

29 – 30 April 2014

Guadalajara, Mexico | Hotel Real Inn Centro

It is widely documented that improved (optimized) hydrocarbon exploration and production strategies and plans have been attained when geomechanical issues are included during the front end loading (FEL) planning stage. Important reductions in well construction time and costs, and enhanced well integrity have been achieved through prospective analysis of geomechanics-related drilling problems. Moreover, important increases in production rates have been accomplished by means of multi-fractured horizontal well implementation to develop reservoirs with low permeability. Additionally, significant costs savings and optimum sand-free production have been achieved when operating conditions for the onset of sand production are timely.
