Whether you want to explore new acreage or manage a mature field, our geologists have diverse knowledge in a wide range of depositional environments that include geochemistry, biostratigraphy, 3D modeling, and geostatistics.
Our extensive database includes work on more than 5,000 projects around the world. A full range of technologies, proprietary software, and workflows enables us to offer the best subsurface understanding and asset advice.
We have access to all subsurface evaluation components: play fairway mapping, prospect generation, reservoir characterization, 3D modeling, and volumetric assessment. In addition to traditional methodologies and best practices, our experience with more complex and unconventional challenges has created new workflows and customized solutions.
Improve the exploration process
Our exploration geologists offer basin modeling, source maturity assessment, migration pathway mapping, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, and prospect risk analysis.
Our team is tightly integrated with the geophysics team. They rely on specialist groups—such as specialist geophysics and formation evaluation experts—that contribute to performance improvement.
Optimize development goals
Development geologists form a key part of our multidisciplinary core teams or larger field-development teams. Working with reservoir engineers, petrophysicists, and geophysicists, our team successfully integrates static and dynamic data for superior reservoir characterization and 3D static models to enhance field development and management.
Our 3D modelers use all leading software packages, including JewelSuite™ geological and reservoir simulation software. Our expert modelers apply the correct amount of detail to make your well plan a success.
Key development geology services include
- reservoir characterization—well correlation and reservoir connectivity assessment; reservoir property description; depositional model identification
- 3D static modeling—model complex reservoirs for future flow simulation and geomechanical modeling
- structural modeling—facies description; property modeling; naturally fractured reservoir modeling; integration of static and dynamic data in conjunction with dynamic modeling
- field development—infill well planning; resources and reserves support; decision and risk analysis.
