Reservoir Characterisation

The starting point of many studies is the collation and interpretation of basic geological data. We use Petrel software in house to enable us to visualise and interpret seismic and well data. ArcGIS software is used for the development of our palaeogeography maps.

Carbonate reservoirs can present a suite of unique reservoir characterisation challenges, particularly if reservoirs have been strongly diagenetically altered (i.e. dolomitisation; karstification; fracturing). We can develop static reservoir models, taking into account both depositional trends and diagenetic overprints, by integrating core, cuttings, SWC, poroperm data, logs, seismic, well test and production data to define flow units. These can be used in volumetric determination and future planning. A bespoke work-plan would be developed in order to fully address reservoir characterisation issues.

Think of us when you are:

  • Developing a mature field, where a new look at old data is needed.
  • Considering the re-activation of an abandoned field.
  • Planning to exploit an under-developed reservoir.
  • Reviewing a new asset or thinking about acquiring an asset.
