Ensuring Wellbore Stability with Geomechanics and Pore Pressure Prediction

Modeling pore pressure and determining a reservoir’s mechanical properties are significant factors in reducing drilling risk and maximizing well and reservoir productivity.  They provide critical input into the placement of a well and play a vital role in designing the most cost effective mud and casing programs, which in turn ensure stability of the wellbore and aid well completion. Paradigm Geolog has long been the industry standard for petrophysics and formation evaluation. With the release of Geolog 7.4, Paradigm addresses the essential aspects of log-based pore pressure prediction and borehole Geomechanics.
