This E-Lecture is a worked case-study in Applied Oilfield Geomechanics: it introduces the elements of a geomechanical model, covers aspects of geomechanical model building and calibration, and works through three applications of the geomechancial model in support of operational decisions. The geomechanical applications presented by Jorg include wellbore stability for drilling an inclined infill well, risk of fault re-activation during gas reinjection and fracture containment in individual reservoirs during hydraulic stimulation.
