This study of the geomechanics of the Cretaceous Viking Formation at Giroux Lake on the Peace River Arch of Alberta was conducted prior to the drilling of a vertical Triassic Montney stratigraphic test and a whipstocked horizontal oil well. Deliverables included a preliminary geomechanical model using offset well data, an examination of drilling risk, mud weight recommendations for both wells, expected completion performance in the horizontal well, recommended data collection in the vertical well and analysis and update of the geomechanical model from the data collected in the vertical well.
