The subsurface stress state and its modification due to production or injection related operations are critical determinants in the design and safe operation wells. Well and reservoir geomechanics are an essential part of  any reasonable and acceptable design to accurately evaluate and predict subsurface rock behaviors.

Improper characterization of the subsurface stress state can result in wellbore yielding/instabilities/failure, driving costs, and safety concerns.
