What you will learn

  • Understanding of the various elastic properties of rocks
  • Step-by-step procedures for calculations
  • “Computer-ready” mathematics
  • Exercises and worked examples for further study

Description

This quantitative course covers the estimation of the mechanical properties of rocks, sometimes called elastic properties or elastic constants, from well log data. These properties are of vital importance in hydraulic fracture (stimulation) design and may influence horizontal well placement. You will learn the specialized skills needed to generate and quality control dynamic elastic properties, such as Shear Modulus, Poisson’s Ratio, and Young’s Modulus, using available well log and lab data. Examples and case histories illustrate the topic.

Prerequisites

  • Crain’s Integrated Petrophysics, Lectures 1 to 13 or equivalent background.
  • Basic understanding of geology and well logging.

Curriculum

  • Mechanical Properties Basics
  • Elastic Constants Theory
  • Log Editing Basics
