Geomechanical Modeling of In-situ Stresses Around a Borehole

Geomechanical Modeling of In-situ Stresses Around a Borehole

A paper presenting a modeling of the in-situ stress state associated with the severe hole enlargement of a wellbore and the geomechanical information needed to ensure wellbore stability. Geomechanical information is relevant to assure wellbore stability, i.e., to prevent damages in the formation and later on, the casing.
