Effect of diagenesis on pore pressures in fine-grained rocks in the Egersund Basin, Central North Sea

Article English OPEN
Kalani, Mohsen ; Zadeh, Mohammad Koochak ; Jahren, Jens ; Mondol, Nazmul Haque ; Faleide, Jan Inge (2015)

Pore pressure in fine-grained rocks is important with respect to drilling problems such as kicks, blowouts, borehole instability, stuck pipe and lost circulation. In this study, a succession of overpressured, fine-grained, sedimentary rocks located in the Egersund Basin... View more
