Integrated geomechanical, geophysical, and geochemical analysis of the Bakken Formation, Elm Coulee field, Williston Basin, Montana
MetadataShow full item record
Hydraulic fracturing is widely implemented in unconventional reservoirs. It requires comprehensive characterization of rock properties in order to determine accurate hydraulic fracture design and well placement. Core analysis has become a critical part of unconventional exploration and development. However, due to the exorbitant costs of core extraction, wireline acoustic logging tools have become the primary source of downhole measurements of geomechanical properties. This study is an integrated approach at defining the core derived geomechanical properties of the Bakken Formation and its ...
