Canadian Discovery Ltd. (CDL) and partners’ 2014 Duvernay Project integrates geomechanics with hydrocarbon systems and geological setting to deliver basin to wellbore scale insights. One of the most important findings of the study was the discovery that the geomechanical setting of the central (Kaybob) area is considerably different from that of the northwestern and southern parts of the study area. This complimentary article and poster illustrates the geomechanics of the Kaybob region by focusing on a key well located in the area. The data set from this well includes daily drilling and completion reports, full core, an image log and a full logging suite including compressional and shear sonic. Analysis results include petrophysical determination of mineralogy, geochemistry and rock mechanical properties, core description, image log analysis, drilling review summarized in a geomechanical Fawkesplot™, modeling to determine maximum horizontal stress magnitude, and wellbore stability analysis.
