... ). The hardening parameter β becomes: Abstract Compaction Drive consists in the expulsion of oil due to the reduction of pore volume. Generally, unconsolidated sands display an elasto-plastic behaviour during depletion. The limit between the elastic and the plastic behaviour is called the pre-consolidation...

... and subsidence can affect the productivity of the reservoir by increasing the reservoir pressure (i.e., the so-called compaction drive). Intuitively, analyses of production and subsidence should be done in a fully-coupled fashion. However, most, if not all, of the analyses done so far on compacting reservoirs...
