: There has been an increasing consciousness regarding to the stress changes associated with reservoir depletion as the industry moves toward more challenging jobs in deep-water or depleted reservoirs. These stress changes have a significant impact on the design of wells in these situations. Therefore, accurate prediction of reservoir stress path, i.e., change in horizontal stresses with pore pressure, is of vital importance.
