Exploring the Geopressure Risk in Deep Water Frontier Plays

Published
American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

Presenting techniques for predicting pore pressure in seals will be the subject of an AAPG E-Symposium taught by Selim S. Shaker and to be held on March 15 at 2 pm CST.

Establishing the geological building blocks for geopressure prediction goes hand in hand with prospect generation. It also forecasts drilling challenges. This e-symposium presents techniques for predicting pore pressure in seals by taking a look at case studies from the Gulf of Mexico and traces the relationship between rocks, fluids, stress, and pressure. It also examines the difference between predicted pore pressure and measurable pore pressure. The geopressure drilling tolerance window can be determined by looking closely at mudweight pressure, hydrodynamic pressure, predicted pore pressure, and the measurable pressure.

Key Topics:
  • Mud weight
  • Pore pressure
  • Dirty salt
  • Salt pressure

INSTRUCTOR:
Selim S. Shaker, Geopressure Analysis Services, Houston, TX

March 15, 2012 @ 2:00 p.m., CST, 1 hour duration

TUITION:

Structure of the E-Symposium

Each e-symposium consists of one-hour live e-symposium, along with material for one full day of independent study. The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).
