A good understanding of Geomechanics both in the reservoir and overburden can help mitigate against the risk and costs involved in performing well control measures, downtime when correcting hole cleaning problems and ensuring fit for purpose and cost effective casing designs.

Our thorough and consistent approach to building a Geomechanical model provides a proven foundation for:
• the prediction of wellbore drilling parameters,
• optimising wellbore stability by modelling in-situ stress fields,
• defining the mud weight window,
• generating rock mechanical properties from logs.
