SPE Workshop: Geomechanics
Applications in Unconventional
Reservoir Development

15–16 OCTOBER 2024 | GALVESTON, TEXAS

In an ever-evolving energy landscape, unconventional reservoirs have emerged as a pivotal resource that is here to stay.

However, substantial capital efficiencies will require improvements in recovery only achievable through the deployment of breakthrough technologies, combined with a much lower environmental imprint.

Designed to foster in-depth discussions, ignite innovative ideas, and set the course for the future of this critical field, this workshop will unite researchers, practitioners, and experts from industry and academia to facilitate meaningful conversations about the intricate interplay between geoscience, engineering, geomechanics and unconventional reservoirs. 

SPONSOR THIS EVENT

Together, we will chart a roadmap for the next ten years in this ever-evolving domain. Topics to be covered include:

  • Geomechanics principles and application in unconventional reservoirs
  • Challenges posed by stimulated rock
  • Impact on hydraulic fracturing and geomechanical stability
  • Role of geomechanics monitoring in unconventionals
  • Advanced simulation techniques
  • Long-term effects of reservoir pressure depletion
  • Strategic sequencing best practices and strategies
  • Integrating geomechanics into reservoir management strategies
  • Advanced techniques and future directions
