Vertically transverse isotropic rocks aren’t as squishy as we think!
Adam Haecker, Chesapeake Energy
This presentation presents a workflow for evaluating minimum horizontal stress in transversely isotropic rock by integrating core and log data to achieve predictive solutions using previously published equations.
In recent years hydraulic fracture modeling and geomechanics models have become increasingly important for the economic development of unconventional shale reservoirs. A clear understanding of the difference in complexity between conventional isotropic rock and vertically transverse isotropic shale is critical to effectively modeling in-situ minimum horizontal stress. Minimum horizontal stress is the main driver of the tensile failure criterion. Often forgotten is the essential C13 tensor and methods for estimating its value will be demonstrated. Furthermore a comparison of this workflow with other log based models and an associated case study will be shown
Adam Haecker is currently a Staff Petrophysicist at Chesapeake Energy in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He previously served as a geoscientist at Cabot Oil and Gas and a wireline field engineer at Weatherford Wireline. Adam holds a bachelor’s degree in geology from Texas A&M University. Adam has extensive experience in rock mechanics, special core analysis, and has worked multiple unconventional reservoirs throughout the continental United States. He has been with Chesapeake since 2011 and is currently serving as the Oklahoma City SPWLA Vice President of Membership.
