Revolutionizing Geomechanics via In Situ and Real Time Data Acquisition

Revolutionizing Geomechanics via In Situ and Real Time Data Acquisition

This presentation focuses on the business-centric approach to transforming geomechanical data acquisition in the oil and gas sector. It explores the implementation of innovative in situ, real-time, physical measurements at the wellbore wall under openhole conditions, addressing the inefficiencies and potential inaccuracies of traditional methods prevalent in the industry.


The talk delves into a groundbreaking methodology leveraging cutting-edge technology for direct physical measurements at the openhole wellbore wall, providing real-time insights into subsurface conditions. By employing state-of-the-art sensors and proven methodologies, this approach enables operators to acquire comprehensive datasets, including crucial geomechanical parameters like UCS and in situ stress. This real-time feedback facilitates immediate analysis, empowering rapid decision-making, and optimization of drilling processes, risk minimization, and enhanced reservoir productivity much faster than previously possible.


Additionally, it addresses the growing need for accessible geomechanical data, particularly in the context of integrating geological storage of carbon dioxide globally. This methodology reduces reliance on conventional core capture techniques, expediting data acquisition while optimizing costs. Consequently, it contributes theoretically to the availability of rock strength and stress datasets, critical in the evolving landscape of oil and gas exploration.


The presentation includes case studies comparing core data with bench tests along with information acquired in situ acquired during shallow test operations. These studies validate accuracy, showcasing how this innovative approach can significantly redefine our understanding of geomechanical data acquisition. Ultimately, it emphasizes the importance of embracing such advancements in driving transformative changes within the oil and gas exploration domain.
