FracGeo workflows and software use the available data such as seismic and/or well log to build Geological and Geomechanical sweetspot models to select well location and landing zone and based on the regional stress and its interaction with natural fracture, elastic properties and pore pressure distribution apply our geomechanical simulator to determine the differential stress and resulting stress gradients that determine the asymmetric hydraulic fracture half lengths to constrain our adaptive frac design.
