Wellbore stability

Successful drilling with geological risk management through better understanding Well Stability window 

The «Wellbore Stability» module allows to perform the wellbore stability window calculations or in another words a combined graph of reservoir pressure and rock breakout, mud losses pressure and hydraulic fracturing using the results of a 1D geomechanical model building. Based on the planning well calculations, it is possible to: 

  • Choose the optimal drilling mud weight 
  • Determine the equivalent circulating density based on mud loss analysis 
  • Optimize the well trajectory and design 

In the module different rock failure criteria are available – Coulomb-Mohr, Modified Lade and Mogi-Coulomb. It is possible to analyze the sensitivity to changes in the well trajectory, rock properties and stress anisotropy. During real-time conducting geomechanical drilling support, all calculations are updated in real time when new logging data is received via the WITSML channel. 

We provide training courses on engineering disciplines as well as software usage
