Mechanical Property Profile (MPP)

To support our laboratory and simulation works, BitCan has developed a Mechanical Property Profiling tool. It is a versatile tool that requires only well logs as input and calculates a continuous profile of mechanical properties along the well depth. Our simulation department relies on the MPP tool to construct accurate 3-D mechanical earth models and to aid in stochasitic simulations and risk assessment. MPP tool is analytical in that it does not require a database for deriving the statistical correlations. It compares very well with laboratory test results.

Mohr-Coulomb friction angle calculated by BitCan’s MPP tool (curve) and comparison with lab test results (marks). Each plot in the above refers to one well. Thus, 4 wells at both shallow and deep depths are illustrated here.
