We assess rock response to external impact and minimize risks at all stages of field life cycle
Wellbore geometry and trajectory optimization; prevention of mud losses, blow outs, control of cuttings volume, avoid natural faults if necessary.
Avoid unwanted water or gas
Assess the direction of permeability channeling
in fractured formations.
Decrease risks of uncontrolled water intrusion
in reservoirs with faults.
Avoid early wear of ESP and ground equipment
Minimize sloughing of sand or proppant in case of wells with hydraulic fracturing.
Enhance production in tight fractured reservoirs
Find fractured areas with better productivity,
plan trajectory and drill a well through these fractures.
Reduce environmental impact
Prevent pollution of aquifers, reduce risks to surface infrastructure associated with subsidence and induced seismicity, select appropriate formations for re-injection of CO2 and drilling waste disposal.
