Techlog Fracture stability enables critical stress analysis of fractures or faults. The shear sliding of critically stressed fractures can result in increased hydraulic conductivity. This can cause additional pathways for hydrocarbon migration or act as channels for water breakthrough and gas coning. A better understanding of fracture mechanics and how it relates to hydraulic conductivity is essential to optimize reservoir and well performance.
