Abstract:

Prediction of reservoir pressure and so its values at an early stage of wellbore designing significantly increases the profitability of exploration and production wells design. The prediction of rock mass pressures can be performed in a number of ways. The prediction methods have been reviewed since the 1950s. The methods of empirical forecasting of pressures proposed by Eaton B.A. as well as Hottman and Johnson were described in the paper. The paper also refers to the prediction of rock mass pressures on the basis of seismic well log results obtained from works performed on the same geologic unit. A relation between basic parameters of rocks along the wellbore profile is shown. The Eaton method was used for empirical determining pressure for a planned well based on seismic data form the existing well.
