This study examined vertical compaction of depleted reservoirs in a new way. From Hooke`s laws of elasticity, we generated polyaxial compactions in the rock by applying the Lagrange averaging technique, which gave a result for the stress-path parameters in the maximum horizontal stress direction. The formulation considered the pore pressure depletion in the reservoir.
