Wellbore stability analysis and relevant-time geomechanical support

Development and validation of a geomechanical model and predictions for three appraisal wells. Post-drilling geomechanical analysis and model update after each well. Inclusion within an integrated team to address hazards associated with the challenging development well. Representative at risk meetings, presentations to Partners and at the ‘Pre-Spud’. Detailed specification of drilling practises and responses to breakout and lost circulation. Real-time geomechanics support and post-drill analysis following successful completion of the well.
