HOUSTON --GeoMechanics International Inc. has launched a service to provide 3D mechanical simulations of stress fields around salt structures.

GMI says the method improves the frac gradient prediction.

"GMI can provide customers with 3D stress fields around salt domes that take into account the specific geometry and deformation behavior of salt," says Patrick Keenan, GMI president. "We believe it provides a significant advance in the field of geomechanics."
