Abstract

It is well known that drilling and producing an oil and gas reservoir can affect its state of stress, possibly affecting the integrity of the subsurface.  These changes can have grave economic and environmental consequences. Understanding them helps mitigate development and production risks, and provides a path to optimally develop the field and maximize recovery.  Today, geomechanical studies are not routinely performed and are often based on a simplified description of the subsurface, which can lead to incorrect assessment of risks or production forecasts.  Reservoir Driven Production Risk Management (RD PRM), a collaboration between Paradigm and Dassault Systèmes, combines reliable subsurface knowledge with state-of-the-art rock mechanics to assess how the reservoir responds to drilling campaigns, completion programs, and injection or production rates.  The result for users is enhanced control over costs, risks and returns.
