This paper uses the observed stress values to simulate the tectonic stress field in the reservoir. Based on the increment analysis method. we discuss the effects and variations of the regional stress field due to both the hydrostatic load and media softening after water filling. The possibility of reservoir induced earthquake has also analyzed.
