Drilling and Completions

Drilling, well completions, and rock mechanics research includes: well bore stability in highly deviated wells; high-temperature/high-pressure properties of drilling fluids; fracture gradient and pore pressure quantifications; MWD, LWD, and PWD technologies; wave propagation and mechanical behavior in weak, loosely cemented, granular materials; and more.
