Our reservoir technical service draws on our geophysical, petrophysical, and geological expertise to give you the answers you need to understand and characterize your reservoir’s production potential so you can optimize hydrocarbon recovery. We perform a thorough reservoir engineering analysis prior to or in conjunction with our reservoir simulation studies.

Our production reservoir engineering analysis can answer your questions about

  • Reservoir characterization
  • Primary recovery
  • Waterfloods
  • Polymer flooding
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2)-enhanced oil recovery and sequestration
  • Hydrocarbon miscible floods
  • Thermal recovery
  • Tight gas
  • Gas condensates
  • Gas storage
  • Acid gas injection
  • Model reviews and audits

By understanding the reservoir using analytical reservoir engineering calculation methods, many of the parameters required for the simulation model are better defined. Using reservoir simulation, it is possible to evaluate the effects of many key reservoir and fluid properties on oil recovery. This is especially useful for complicated reservoirs or reservoir fluids in which simple analytical methods are not capable of yielding good results.

Many reservoir optimization questions can be answered by performing simulations after carefully characterizing the reservoir. By integrating these results with surface planning requirements, we can work with you to create a robust field development plan.
