Course Overview

What will I Learn?

This training aims to equip professionals in the petroleum industry with the knowledge and skills to analyze the behavior of rocks under subsurface conditions. Participants will learn various geomechanical concepts, including stress analysis, wellbore stability, hydraulic fracturing, and reservoir depletion. Through practical exercises and case studies, attendees will gain hands-on experience in applying geomechanical principles to real-world scenarios.

Who Is It For?

This course is ideal for geologists, reservoir engineers, drilling engineers, and other professionals involved in reservoir characterization and wellbore stability assessment. become problems is crucial in delivering a successful deviated well. Invest in yourself, your team and ultimately your results by attending Merlin’s geomechanics training course.
