Formation Integrity Process

"I have always been impressed by the professionalism your team shows. Quick response times, always meeting the deadlines, always staying within budget. [The FIT] comes up with lots of smart ideas and solutions. Any client can definitely be assured of 100% customer satisfaction."

Christian Enzendorfer, Production Co-ordinator, OMV (UK) Ltd

LR Senergy’s formation integrity technology (FIT) team is one of the world’s leading independent geomechanics groups.


We have worked on a wide range of sand management, wellbore stability, production enhancement, PWRI and cuttings re-injection projects for many operators, from small independents to super majors.


A combined experience of over 200 years with no corporate pressures to sell hardware, tools or logging services, allows LR Senergy to offer 100% objective and pragmatic geomechanics advice. Plan to maximise your well’s potential using the core skills of LR Senergy’s geomechanics team.

Pore pressure and wellbore stability

The LR Senergy geomechanics team combines it's skills to provide an accurate assessments of pore pressure,  hole stability and fracture gradient. The data is presented in driller friendly output to ensure optimum well construction with minimum non productive time. In addition LR Senergy offer real and relevant time support to ensure that unavoidable uncertainty is reacted to in a timely and informed manner.

Sanding prediction and control

The geomechanics group is wholly dedicated to optimising clients’ sand management strategies from drilling to abandonment. We assess the probability of sand failure and sand production over the life of any well, and deliver the practical advice required to alleviate sand production concerns. By employing both analytical and numerical (finite element) methods we adapt the analysis to suit the level of complexity required and to match the data available.

Hydraulic fracture and reservoir modelling

LR Senergy can assess and design formation stimulation and production enhancement opportunities. For example by evaluating hydraulic fracturing for production enhancement, thermal fracturing, produced water and cuttings re-injection. The geomechanical challenges of CO2 disposal schemes are also reviewed. As well as near wellbore implications of fluid injection we review issues at field scale using reservoir models coupled to geomechanical properties. By this means issues such as fault reactivation can be considered. Production related risks such as the potential for fault slip, subsidence, compaction or casing damage in high depletion scenarios can also be evaluated.
