We determine the input parameters for our modelling in our highly sophisticated lab.
We at geomecon have developed a reliable dedicated workflow for estimation of the in-situ stress tensor in both green and brown field scenarios.
Downtime during drilling is one of the major cost factors for any drilling project. A priori wellbore stability analysis is therefore fundamental to avoid costs later on.
The effect of structures on the geosphere in areas of demanding geomorphology is challenging. Numerical simulations can determine stresses
induced by topography and man-made structures, as well as the stability of the rock mass.
A technically sound and well-founded examination of induced seismicity is one of the basic requirements for the public acceptance and licensing approval of projects such as geothermal
power plants, hydrocarbon production, sequestration or dams.
Interested whether your hydraulic stimulation might reactivate nearby faults or might affect the integrity of the seal? Our numerical and analytical solutions can provide answers to these questions.
Extracting energy from the subsurface can also be achieved by the usage of heat pumps. Our numerical simulations help increasing the heat energy potential.
Man-made changes in the subsurface might cause unwanted heave or subsidence of the terrain. Our fully coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical simulations can predict the deformation of the terrain indicating damage to construction.
Large naturally-induced earthquakes have the potential to harm constructions above surface and trigger slip on near-by smaller faults. The latter can be of major concern to subsurface constructions.
Our dynamic simulation of elastic waves propagating through rock can help understand the damage inflicted by earthquakes.
Our dynamic thermo-hydraulically coupled geomechanical models can accurately describe the influence of fluid injection and production on complex subsurface systems. One example for the application of such models is the suitability evaluation of mine buildings of the former coal mining industry for heat storage.
