About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to focus on applied and fundamental studies using mathematical modeling, numerical and physical tests, or case studies during drilling, injection, and production operations. Furthermore, it will include improved methods of developing numerical and physical models for wellbore stability, overpressure detection and pore pressure modeling, caprock integrity, shale oil/gas geomechanics, hydraulic fracturing, sand production prediction, physical and mathematical modeling of borehole breakouts, surface subsidence and formation damage issues, among others.
We welcome you to submit high-quality manuscripts to this Research Topic on overpressure in sedimentary basins and petroleum geomechanics. Potential topics of research include, but are not limited to:
• Reservoir geomechanics;
• Pore pressure prediction and detection;
• Overpressure generation mechanisms;
• Sand production and fines migration;
• Hydraulic fracturing;
• Wellbore stability and wellbore integrity;
• Caprock integrity and fault reactivation;
• Surface subsidence due to reservoir depletion;
• Surface heave in thermal operations;
• Borehole-completion interactions;
• In situ stress assessments;
• 3D geomechanical modeling;
• Geomechanics of shale oil/gas reservoirs;
• Oil sands geomechanics;
• Machine learning applications in such topics;
• Geomechanics of geothermal wells.
