Geomechanical hydrocarbon reservoirs are important in oil and gas fields' development. Also one of the most important issues is Oil wells stability. Considering being economical this Issue, Determine mud Pressure for well stability is important. The amount and direction of the main tensions, Mechanical properties with pore pressure are input necessary parameters for study. By choosing stubble failure criteria can doing analysis with Fine precision. This study is about how to determine stress around wellbore and how to measure safe mud weight window at every Slope and Azimuth for well in oilfield in south of Persian Gulf by geomechanical method. For this study, then we chose 4 different depth for typical sampling and calculated bottom hole pressure, direct and azimuth of well that well be stable by using Mohr-Colomb criteria. By identifying the input data, different direct and azimuth of well is calculated. Mud window for 4 different depth respectively is 27-36.5 & 29-39.5 & 41-55 & 47.5-55. In continue maximum and minimum mud drilling density is calculated. In the end Obtained ruptures in different direct and azimuth and some of them have been reported.
