34 Taiwan Chelungpu Drilling Project Modeling anisotropic breakouts in the FB shale with the given in situ stress state Anisotropic failure MW = 10.5 ppg Isotropic failure Anisotropic failure MW = 12 ppg Observed Bedding plane properties: dip = 8° (from core data) Azi = 23° (from core data) S 0 = 4.8 MPa (from lab data)  s = 0.21 (from lab data) Result: The in situ stress tensor derived in this study and the bedding plane properties measured in the lab can account for the anisotropic breakouts seen in the FB shale
