• Understanding the poroelastic effect is of high interest for evaluating coupled effects of rock deformation and pore pressure during exploration, development and production operations.
  • Important applications include time-dependent wellbore failure, predictions of fracture initiation and the evolution of pore pressure during development.
  • Biot coefficient is an important poroelastic constant that dictates the coupled behavior and relates the magnitude of deformation of rock framework and fluid.
  • Biot coefficient is critical for estimation of in situ minimum horizontal stress
