The past decade has witnessed renewed interest and significant development in the field of reservoir geomechanics. Prior to that, geomechanics was a loosely collected group of applications of rock, soil, and fracture mechanics that addressed various problems in drilling, production, completion, and reservoir engineering. However, it is now increasingly evident that geomechanics is one of the common threads that connect many engineering disciplines that are essential for finding and producing hydrocarbon resources.
