PETROENG 7067 - Advanced Geomechanics

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2020

This course comprises an integrated set of modules focusing on rock mechanics, structural geology, seismology, source of stresses in the subsurface and petroleum geomechanics to cover a large range of geomechanical issues such as stress quantification, pore pressure prediction, brittle deformation and fluid flow interaction, determination of optimally stable and productive well trajectories. The course is designed for petroleum and subsurface resources engineers, and for engineers or scientists interested in understanding the stresses in the earth subsurface.
