Compaction & Subsidence


A successful field development programme needs to take account of reservoir compaction and surface subsidence to minimise risk and optimise production.


As the reservoir depletes, subsurface compaction and surface subsidence can occur. These vertical and horizontal strains can lead to well damage and casing failure, fault reactivation and damage to surface infra-structure.


A compaction and subsidence assessment by GeoScience geomechanics experts enables you to plan a field management strategy to maximise production with minimum risk over the life of the field to blowdown and beyond.
