Practical Geomechanics

13 November 2014
  |  
Houston, Texas, United States
Who Should Attend
This course is recommended to geoscientists and engineers in the petroleum and geothermal industries, and for research scientists interested in stress measurements and their application to problems arising from rock failure.
Objectives

By the end of the course the participant should be able to:

  • Identify situations where geomechanics can be applied profitably
  • Determine the impact of critically-stressed fractures on drilling and production
  • Find the causes of stress perturbations
  • Define different modes of rock failure and deformation
  • Identify the causes of fault slip and the consequences
Course Content

This interdisciplinary course encompasses the fields of rock mechanics, structural geology and petroleum engineering to address a wide range of geomechanical problems that arise during the exploitation of oil and gas reservoirs. We will be covering the exploration, assessment and production phases of petroleum reservoir development.

Course notes will be provided in digital format on USB flash drive only, so electronic devices with a USB port are required for all courses. If you do not have access to an electronic device with a USB port, please contact the AAPG Education Dept. for an alternate method to download the digital course notes.
