Hydraulic Fracture Design
Assessment of in-situ stress, frac gradient, and tensile strength that can be utilized when planning hydraulic fracture programs.
Wellbore Stability and Sand Control
Understanding in-situ stress, compressive/shear strength, and deformation characteristics provides insights into formation failure conditions and determination of mud weight parameters.
Dipole Sonic Log Calibration
Correlation of dynamic elastic properties determined downhole to laboratory measured dynamic and static elastic properties.
Pore Volume Compressibility
Provides an understanding and planning for compaction drive and changes in storage capacity of reservoirs as a function of the pressure/stress state of the geologic system.
