Course Description

This interdisciplinary course encompasses the fields of rock mechanics, structural geology, earthquake seismology and petroleum engineering to address a wide range of geomechanical problems that arise during the exploitation of oil and gas reservoirs.

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.

The course is intended for geoscientists and engineers in the petroleum and geothermal industries, and for research scientists interested in stress measurements and their application to...

This course was a great experience, I would recommend this to my colleagues, A good balance of covered material and homework (a final would be nice though). The Instructor was clear, insightful, and provided excellent examples on topic. In this format I can set my pace, review material at my leisure, and had sufficient time to concentrate on the homework assignments. Thanks!

Excellent, but short course. I will recommend it to all petroleum engineers since it covers all geomechanical problems from wellbore stability to optimization of multistage hydraulic fracturing. It is also recommended to buy and read prof. Zoback's book.
