Advanced Geotechnology is an international consulting,
training and software firm based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We
provide a range of services in petroleum engineering, geomechanics and
geosciences to clients around the world including: oil and gas operators,
service companies, government agencies, universities and research institutes.
The firm has unique capabilities in Petroleum Geomechanics,
including advanced modeling and simulation expertise, for:
wellbore instability, lost circulation, sand production, fractured reservoir
characterization, coupled reservoir-geomechanical simulation,
caprock integrity, casing failures, hydraulic fracturing, subsurface waste
disposal, reservoir compaction and subsidence.
Advanced Geotechnology is the developer of STABViewTM,
an industry-leading software package for advanced well planning and design that
reduces the risks associated with wellbore instability, lost circulation, sand production
and casing failures. STABView can be used to rapidly assess a wide
variety of stability issues for all types of wells in all geological settings. The
software has been used for well design and analysis in over 250 projects, for
more than 80 clients. STABView was developed as part of
Drilling Engineering Association project DEA-147 which was funded by ChevronTexaco, Nexen, Petrobras, Baker Oil Tools, Weatherford International,
and other companies.
ROCKSBankTM is Advanced Geotechnology's new worldwide
rock mechanical and petrophysical properties database for the energy industry.
This first-of-a-kind software currently stores over 1000 different
laboratory test attributes and is delivered with a pre-populated database of
rock properties from petroleum basins around the globe. ROCKSBank
was developed with the support of the Completion Engineering Association
(CEA-143), the Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada (PTAC) and the National
Research Council of Canada.
Advanced Geotechnology offers the
following short courses and workshops in Canada and abroad:
Practical Rock Mechanics for Drilling and Completions
Petroleum Geomechanics for Reservoir Exploitation
New Tools for Characterizing and Modeling Fractured Reservoirs
STABView Wellbore Stability and Sand Production Workshop
Customized training courses and seminars can also
be developed for clients.
Advanced Geotechnology can work closely with several world-class laboratories
and research institutes to deliver high quality testing programs tailored to our clients' needs. We
make a considerable investment in research and development every year to provide new
technologies for our consulting services and software products.
Advanced Geotechnology is dedicated to providing integrated, field-ready solutions of the highest
quality to our clients. In addition to our in-house staff we have an extensive
network of technical partners and associates who assist us with bringing practical solutions to
many of the challenging subsurface engineering and
geoscience issues in today's
