Wellbore Stability

GeoMechanics’ advanced wellbore stability analysis techniques take into account inelastic material behavior and realistic wellbore damage and collapse behavior.  This provides more practical mud weight design guidelines than simple elastic models.

GeoMechanics Technologies provides the following services related to drilling optimization and wellbore stability:

  • Mechanical property estimates from log data;
  • In-situ stress estimates;
  • Safe mudweight calculations;
  • Optimum drilling trajectory to reduce stability problems and increase production.
