Southern Peace River Block, Northeastern BC
September 1, 2015

Variability in stress orientation in the Montney in the southern Peace River Block is investigated in this structurally complex area of NEBC. Structuring could rotate the in situ stress, which could have important implications for drilling, completions and production in the Montney. Available image logs, shear anisotropy data and caliper data are used to identify stress-induced wellbore failure, fast shear azimuth zones and stress directions from breakouts. Results are summarized on a Maximum Horizontal Stress Orientation map.
