Applied Petroleum Geomechanics

Dr. Younane N. Abousleiman
Descripción del instructor

Is the Larry W. Brummett/ONEOK Chair and Professor in the Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering, ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics, and adjunct Professor in the School of Civil Engineering & Environmental Science, and the Director of the PoroMechanics Institute in the Sarkeys Energy Center at the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Abousleiman received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Delaware, M.S. in Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics from Columbia University, New York, and his B.E. from the American University of Beirut. Dr. Abousleiman’s main areas of research are the mechanics of porous media (poromechanics) and its application to problems in petroleum and geotechnical engineering and modeling in boundary element and finite element methods. In particular, he has made significant contributions to the solution of a class of poromechanics problems involving transverse isotropy. Currently Dr. Abousleiman is the director of two PoroMechanics Institute industry consortia: The Rock Mechanics Consortium and the GeoGenome Industry Consortium. These industry consortia are composed of seventeen companies, all related to oil and gas operations, (i.e., Chevron, Halliburton, ConocoPhillips, Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp., Saudi Aramco, etc.) which basically drive the research interest. The research has focused on wellbore drilling mechanics, flow/stress in naturally fractured reservoirs, soft sediment mechanics, and shale chemomechanics activities when exposed to fluids. In addition, the nano poromechanics research is being undertaken in the GeoGenome Industry Consortium.

ABOUT COURSE

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Geomechanics in reservoir characterization course materials deal with the mechanics of fluid saturated rock in the context of wellbore and reservoir mechanics and interactions. Wellbore drilling and stability, reservoir sound and fractured formation analyses will be conducted and we will illustrate numerically the effect of stress and fluid pressure depletion on the overall rock porosity and permeability. The newly developed approaches to the geomechanical solutions of fractured reservoirs as a dual-porosity and dual permeability system will be studied in detail. The approach of using dual-porosity and dual-permeability simulation to model naturally fracture reservoirs is by now the sailing method that reservoir engineers are trying to understand and apply. Also, the geomechanical laboratory rock properties characterization such as Poisson’s ratio, rock compressibility, and stiffness measurements in addition to the pore pressure coefficients will be studied and demonstrated in detail.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES 

  •  Basic geomechanics theory
  •  Geomechanics of reservoir rock with laboratory demonstrations
  •  Software knowledge in rock mechanical calibration
  •  Hands-on exercises and computer modeling demonstrations
  •  Software to perform wellbore stability and mud chemistry calculations  

 

WHOS SHOULD ATTEND

Petrophysicists, drilling engineers, completion engineers, exploration and development geologists, reservoir engineers, geophysicists, and research and development staff.

 

At the end of the classroom instruction, the trainees should be able to determine the stress, strain, and failure mechanics of rocks; apply geomechanics concepts and solutions and generate economic benefits in reservoir development.
