Practical GeoMechanicsPractical GeoMechanics is a consulting company providing independent advisory, training, and consulting services in the area of GeoMechanics as applied in the Oil and Gas exploration and production industry. In essence GeoMechanics solutions are generated to avoid hazards and promote rewards in relation to drilling, completing, and producing gas and oil wells.
What is Geomechanics?
- It is the theoretical and applied science of the mechanical behavior of geological material.
- It is used to reduce risks and optimize rewards related to the mechanical failure of the reservoir, over, side and under burden formations.
- A geological formation will fail when the stresses it is subjected to, exceed its strength.
- The role of Geomechanics is to predict when failure would occur, assess its risks and opportunities and recommend mitigation plan(s).
Our services cover in situ stress and rock mechanics characterisation, borehole stability, sanding prediction, subsidence, fault reactivation, and hydraulic fracturing in both conventional and unconventional environments
