Minimizing risk by determining a safe mud weight window for offshore wellbore construction ///

Increased requirements for uncertainty analysis have caused a shift in sensitivity assessment, from a deterministic approach to a stochastic process. To ensure wellbore integrity, it’s essential to conduct breakout and geomechanical fracture analysis to estimate a safe mud weight window for use during offshore drilling.
