Shale Development

An important and critical key for increased production from shale plays is to properly characterize the geomechanical properties of the producing formation. This includes identifying stress direction, optimum well trajectory, and fracture orientation, and understanding the relationship between matrix permeability, natural fracture permeability, and induced fracture permeability.

It is critical to design stimulation operations that not only increase production, but also preserve formation integrity and minimize environmental impact. Professionals at GeoMechanics Technologies have experience and expertise to support exploration, drilling, stimulation and production operations in shale formations, with services that include:
