LGS Luncheon – May 2018

DrIgor

Petroleum Geomechanics is concerned with rock and fracture behavior in reservoir, drilling, completion and production engineering. In more detail, Geomechanics aims to understand how soils and rocks deform to changes of stress, pressure, chemistry and of temperature. During last several decades, intense research has been conducted to better comprehend the processes that link temperature (T), hydrologic flow (H), mechanical deformation (M), and chemical alteration (C) in fractured rock/soils systems. The study is complex because these processes are strongly . . . → Read More: LGS Luncheon – May 2018

Abstract:

Unconventional Isn’t Easy

Trevor Casper The pace of horizontal drilling in onshore plays far outpaces the drilling of conventional vertical and deviated wells in North America. This pace, combined with strategies like pad drilling and early industry and financing comments about “mining” for oil and gas, have contributed to a sense, in some circles, . . . → Read More: LGS Luncheon – February 2018
