Paper Number: ARMA-2022-0379
... ABSTRACT: The experimental studies highlighting the strength weakening of chalk when water replaces oil in pore space have incited geomodellers to systematically solve for the effect of water saturation on chalk strength at each simulation step to estimate reservoir compaction. The present...

Paper Number: ARMA-2021-1998
... ABSTRACT: Experimental evidence has shown that water-saturated chalk specimens are weaker than oil-saturated samples. The extent of water-induced weakening does not rely only on the stress state and degree of saturation but also on temperature, brine composition, and mineralogy. Our goal...

... data from the field. Introduction As pressure changes during the production of hydrocarbon from reservoirs, chalk may compact due to change in in situ stresses and saturating fluids. Subsurface deformation is transferred to the sideburden, overburden and earth surface, resulting into wellbore...
