Paper presented at the Gulf Rocks 2004, the 6th North America Rock Mechanics Symposium (NARMS), June 5–9, 2004
Paper Number: ARMA-04-462
... incorporates the pore pressure, the stress magnitudes and orientations, the rock strength, and the well trajectory. This paper presents a case history of using a geomechanical model to optimize the design of a deviated wellbore in West Delta block 83, GOM to prevent similar problems to those in offset wells...

... relationships between fracture system geometry and underlying geologic mechanisms. The model employs Poisson plane and line processes as well as random spatial rotation and translation to represent fracture orientations, intensity, and relations to major geologic structures. The model is implemented in the...

The analyses show that certain well and perforation orientations will be vulnerable to sanding, but that other well and perforation orientations are expected to remain stable even after repeated injection and shut-down cycles. 1.

... inclination/orientation, perforation orientation, reservoir pressure depletion and water-cut on sand production potential was evaluated. The study shows that sand production is unlikely in the early stage of production for all the fields. However, sand production is likely to occur in some reservoir...

In order to compute collapse and lost circulation pressures from velocities, it is necessary to utilize quite general...
