We will host a presentation about Mechanical Earth Modeling (MEM) on December 1, 2016. Students will learn about how to determine the geomechanical state of the reservoir. The model incorporates property distribution (e.g., density, porosity), fracture system, pore pressures, state of stress, and rock mechanical properties. Details about the meeting can be found here. Free food.

We hosted a technical presentation on September 27, 2016. Students learned about mechanics of coiled tubing: fundamentals and challenges of coiled tubing. Details about the meeting can be found here.

We hosted two technical presentations on February 24 and February 25, 2016. Students learned about fundamentals of torque, drag and buckling in horizontal wells, Extended Reach Architect (ERA) software, COMSOL Multiphysics software and network with industry experts. Details about the meetings can be found here.
