Reservoir:Application of a Geomechanically Calibrated, Seismically Constrained Reservoir Model to Unconventional Resource Development


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.
