Poro-Elasticity Aspects in Geomechanics

This three-days course is designed to provide these understanding in petroleum industry with a thorough overview of most key aspects of elasto-static reservoir properties, poro-elasticity, tectonic environment and case study.  This course will be in an interactive format, i.e. the participants will actively be involved by doing lots of exercises.
