INTRODUCTION Reservoir geomechanics has become an area of increasing
focus within petroleum reservoir management. Reservoir mechanics deals with: -
Reservoir rock deformability, which may cause compaction and associated
possible well problems (like casing collapse) or environmental problems (like
surface subsidence; e.g. Geertsma, 1973; Chilingarian et al., 1995). Compaction
is on the other hand a drive mechanism, and may improve recovery. - Reservoir
stress path ...

In turn, these stress variations and associated strains modify the fluids flow in the reservoir and change the wellbore stability parameters. This book offers a large overview on applications of Geomechanics to petroleum industry.

I. ALASSI,1 LIMING LI,2 and RUNE M. HOLT1,2 Abstract—Stress changes within
and around a depleting petroleum reservoir can lead to reservoir compaction and
surface subsidence, affect drilling and productivity of oil wells, and influence
seismic waves used for monitoring of reservoir performance. Currently modeling
efforts are split into more or less coupled geomechanical (normally linearly
elastic), fluid flow, and geophysical simulations. There is evidence (from e.g.
induced ...

Introduction This chapter is concerned with the numerical simulation of
compaction of hydrocarbon-bearing rocks, more commonly referred to as
reservoir rock. With respect to operations in the petroleum industry, rock
compaction may be defined as the reduction in overall volume of a subsurface
stratum of rock as a result of production of fluids (oil, water and gas) stored within
the pore space of the reservoir rocks. During production, both the volume of fluid
and the fluid pressure ...

Geomechanical Reservoir Modeling – a geological application of high-
performance computing Karsten Fischer∗, Andreas Henk† Albert-Ludwigs-
Universität Freiburg Technische Universität Darmstadt Abstract: Tectonic stresses
affect the optimal exploitation of hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs in
numerous ways. Amongst others, wellbore stability and the orientation of
hydraulically induced fracs depend on the recent in situ stresses. The local stress
field can vary substantially ...
