Pre-drill wellbore stability and PPFG predictions for four wells in a structurally complex, high tectonic stress area with wide variations in pore pressure magnitudes with depth. Co-ordination of rock mechanics laboratory testing, including sample selection and supervision of testing laboratory. Work as part of a multi-disciplinary team on well placement, design, cost minimisation and production optimisation. Geomechanics monitoring during drilling.
