Reservoir Geomechanics (ResGeo202) Stanford University
By Dr. Mark D. Zoback and PHD student. Arjun Kohli & Rall Walsh
The course considers key practical issues such as prediction of pore pressure, estimation of hydrocarbon column heights and fault seal potential, determination of optimally stable well trajectories, casing set points and mud weights, changes in reservoir performance during depletion, and production-induced faulting and subsidence. The first part of the course establishes the basic principles involved in a way that allows readers from different disciplinary backgrounds to understand the key concepts.
