CEE 412 Petrophysics and Reservoir Geomechanics

Credits

3 cr.

Corequisite

CEE 330

Course Description

This course is designed to provide students with a fundamental understanding of petrophysics and reservoir geomechanics. Petrophysics topics include properties of rocks, measurement and interpretation of petrophysical properties, application of petrophysics to subsurface engineering problems, and interaction of resident fluids with rocks. Reservoir geomechanics topics include stress and strain analysis, pore pressure and in-situ stress estimation and measurement, deformation mechanisms in rock, wellbore stresses and failure, depletion-induced reservoir deformation, and hydraulic fracturing.

Notes

This course is offered every other year.
