Teverra is specialized in Geomechanics with applications in oil and gas, geothermal, carbon storage and subsurface energy storage projects. Our world-class, experienced team provides 1 to 4-D geomechanical modeling, pore pressure prediction, in-situ stress estimation, rock property evaluation, rock mechanics testing design, wellbore stability analysis, sand production prediction, naturally fractured reservoir characterization, production optimization, hydraulic/acid fracturing modeling and design, gas/fluid injection, well and completion design, casing design, drilling optimization, and well intervention. We also design, execute, supervise and quality control rock mechanics testing programs to make sure that the maximum value is obtained from your expensive core samples. Teverra is partnered with Premier Oilfield Group to get access to state-of-the-art testing facilities. We are also partnered with best-in-class companies to leverage our well construction and reservoir engineering capabilities.
We believe that geomechanics is a powerful tool, if used properly, to maximize production of hydrocarbon or heat, minimize risk and reduce time and cost of subsurface operations. We do geomechanics properly and we are proud of being able to save millions of dollars and hundreds of operating days for our clients.
Geomechanics without Logs
Teverra has developed a disruptive technology, Drilling Dynamics Geomechanics (DDGTM), that enables construction of geomechanical models including rock mechanical properties, pore pressure and in-situ stresses with drilling data only.
Availability of the required logs for geomechanics has always been a major challenge for the geomechanics community and also for the operators to pay the cost of additional logging. These logs are almost never available in the overburden formations and along horizontal wells preventing geomechanical characterization.
This advanced technology, that is based on combined signal processing and physics-informed deep learning, makes it possible to characterize geomechanical parameters from surface to the reservoir and along the horizontal wells, thus, creating the opportunity to improve drilling in the overburden and in laterals, identify and mitigate casing deformation, and to optimize completions design, frac stage spacing, cluster spacing, packer/perforation placement, and frac design by providing information about variation of geomechanical parameters along horizontal sections.
This technology can be applied to all well trajectories in all sorts of lithologies regardless of the drilling system and bit types used.
