Today Extended-Reach Drilling (ERD) wells are widely used because of complex geology. Troubles in ERD can cause big expenses and affect whole project economy. That is why it is crucial to predict and prevent troubles in drilling. Real cases show how cross-functional interaction and geomechanical modeling contribute reduction of non-productive time. Today geomechanical modeling is used as a tool to collect and conform broad spectrum of data. Getting geomechanical modeling in perspective will increase drilling efficiency further.
