Broaching Simulation & Analysis

Broaching simulation and analysis consist of the evaluation of a shut-in well’s behavior once pressure at the casing shoe exceeds the fracture gradient of the surrounding formation. The transient simulation technology analyzes fracturing of the formation, upward propagation of the fractures, charging up of any exposed formation above the casing shoe, and eventual broaching to the surface.
