Not quite sure what geomechanics is and what it can do for you? Then this workshop is perfect for you. In this two-hour session we will:

  • Define geomechanics and how it has changed over the years
  • Describe the necessary components of a geomechanical model and explain how to get them
  • Review the many and varied applications of geomechanics in the oil and gas industry
  • Using real examples, present the value proposition of incorporating geomechanics in a project

The goal of this workshop is to get all attendees conversant in geomechanics and able to go back to the field or office with a clear understanding of why it matters.
