Josh Ulla has a track record of applying innovative solutions to geoscience problems. He is tasked with bringing Fracture ID to market, listening to operators’ concerns, and continually improving Fracture ID’s actionable results. Before joining Fracture ID, Ulla worked with ExxonMobil in the Geophysical Operations and Formation Evaluations Groups. He served as the Global Borehole Seismic Expert and was relied upon to model, design, acquire, process, and interpret seismic and petrophysical data. Ulla holds a master’s in potential field magnetic interpretation.

Full Description

 

As the industry improves its development of onshore, unconventional plays, new technologies are needed, such as Fracture ID’s drillbit geomechanics. By measuring the drillbit’s accelerations, in three components, as it responds to the rock during drilling, a three-component stress/strain relationship can be determined. With this, there are plenty of properties that can be delivered, such as Poisson’s Ratio, Young’s Modulus, and bedding and fracture presence. Measuring these properties along the wellbore allows operators to improve completions, observe interactions between wells, improve landing zones, and better space wells. This presentation will cover different applications of drillbit geomechanics, with an emphasis on 3D earth modeling.
