    Application of Seismic Frequency Based Pore Pressure Prediction in Well Design: Review of an Integrated Well Design Approach in Deep Water Gulf of Mexico
    Author(s): Saeed SalehiSaeed Salehi

    Improving well design has and always will be the primary goal in drilling operations in the oil and gas industry. To address this issue, an analysis of wellbore stability and well design improvement has been conducted. This study will show a systematic approach to well design by focusing on best practices for mud weight window projection for a field in Mississippi Canyon, Gulf of Mexico. The field includes depleted reservoirs and is in close proximity of salt intrusions. Analysis of offset wells has been conducted in the interest of developing an accurate picture of the subsurface environment by making connections between depth, Non-Productive Time (NPT) events, and mud weights used. Commonly practiced petro physical methods of pore pressure, fracture pressure, and shear failure gradient prediction have been applied to key offset wells in order to enhance the well design for a propose..
