• Can heating-induced creep result in shale barriers for P&A applications? 

      Bauer, Andreas Kurt Marcel; Stenebråten, Jørn; Li, Liming; Fjær, Erling (Chapter, 2017)
      It has been shown that some shale formations form barriers around a casing of a well due to shale creep that results in closure and sealing of the annulus around the casing. The existence of such shale barriers facilitates ...
    • Overburden geomechanical effects on 4D seismic response - influences of stiffness contrast, anisotropy, and geometry 

      Li, Liming; Bauer, Andreas; Holt, Rune Martin; Fjær, Erling; Stenebråten, Jørn; Bakk, Audun (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Petroleum production and CO2 storage induce effective stress changes and deformations in the reservoir, as well as in the overburden. This may be detected by 4D seismic monitoring due to the stress-sensitivity of the seismic ...
    • Particle scale reservoir mechanics 

      Li, Liming (Doktoravhandlinger ved NTNU, 1503-8181; 116, Doctoral thesis, 2002)
      When a petroleum reservoir is produced, the mechanical state of stress is changing, which leads to alteration of rock mechanical behaviour, of fluid flow, and of geophysical parameters. Numerical schemes have been developed ...
    • Shale as a Permanent Barrier after Well Abandonment 

      Folstad, Jon Steinar (Master thesis, 2015)
      During the lifetime of petroleum wells, the purpose of the well barrier elements is to ensure well integrity within the short and long time frame while it is exposed to its surrounding environment. Leakages of the sealing ...
    • SPE-174356-MS Effect of Rock Anisotropy on Integrated Modelling 

      Li, Liming; Bakk, Audun; Fjær, Erling; Bauer, Andreas; Stenebråten, Jørn; Holt, Rune Martin (Chapter, 2015)
      Associated with reservoir monitoring towards optimizing production of oil and gas and maximizing the recovery, or ensuring safe CO2 storage, it may be beneficial to introduce integrated geomechanics, rock physics and seismic ...
