Abstract


Geopressure studies are one of the most important activities in the upstream sector of oil industry. The geological formation analysis of the existing prospectus of a sedimentary basin enables the measurement of overload, fracture, and pore pressures. Geopressure can be understood as any pressure or stress on a geological formation, whether on macro or microscopic scale. The estimate of geopressure is one of the most important steps for the establishment of an engineering design of drilling operations and well design. The aim of this work is to present the development of a GUI developed for geopressure analysis, i.e. pore pressure curves, fracture curves, and collapse curves. This work presents the definition of geopressure and GUI interface development protocols for a petroleum engineer, as well as real examples and windows of absorption tests with the appropriate operating depths where they are seated shoes.
