Borehole Breakout Analysis

Appropriate assignment of mud pressure while drilling is required to ensure borehole stability. The simulation investigate the development conditions for borehole breakout and drilling induced tensile fractures in a vertical borehole.

Learning Outcomes

  • Simulate the development of borehole breakouts and drilling induced tensile fractures in a vertical borehole.
  • Investigate the influence of different stress regimes on the development of borehole failure.
  • Explore the effect of mud pressure and effective rock strength on the borehole stability.
