Baker Hughes reservoir technical services (RTS) provide the subsurface intelligence, technical ingenuity, and experience to develop strategies that drive performance, production, and profits across the life of your asset.
Our integrated, multidiscipline teams comprise experts in formation evaluation, geoscience and geomechanics, reservoir modeling and simulation, reservoir engineering, and well production. Starting with a reservoir-first mindset, these multidisciplinary teams engineer solutions that:
- Provide accurate interpretation and evaluation
- Deliver faster, better reservoir understanding
- Offer expert recommendations on well placement and construction
- Maximize well production and enhance hydrocarbon recovery
- Leverage the energy transition
Accurate interpretation and evaluation
For insight into reserves’ potential and accessibility, RTS teams will work with you to capture, organize, reprocess, and merge raw data in a consistent manner to streamline the distribution of critical formation properties. And, when data are limited, they can identify commercially successful analogues by correlating available data with Baker Hughes studies, actual results, or available source-rock samples. Our experts are specialized in every facet of wireline logging and logging while drilling (LWD) to assist in log and image interpretation, play evaluation, mineralogy, core-log integration, pressure testing, and fluid characterization.
Faster, better reservoir understanding
To forecast the performance of complex oil and gas reservoirs, subsurface attributes are then mapped into a fully integrated 3D reservoir model and simulated. For accurate and fast modeling of complex geology, our Reservoir Software experts use the JewelSuite™ subsurface modeling software that provides a full seismic-to-simulation workflow-based solution. This fit-for-purpose structural modeling and gridding workflow dramatically reduces time by integrating 1D, 3D, and 4D geomechanics with 3D reservoir models and reservoir simulation. Quicker, smarter models result in faster and more profitable business decisions.
The more you understand the reservoir, the better positioned you are to maximize profitable recovery. But, when you are limited by available resources or experience, or second-guessing a complex evaluation, our experts can help you simplify the workflow and ease uncertainty from interpretation through design.
With years of experience in geoscience, modeling and simulation, economics, and reservoir engineering, our professionals conduct integrated, multidisciplinary exploitation studies to recommend the optimum technical and economic reservoir exploitation plan.
Enhanced well production and hydrocarbon recovery
Our RTS teams can help you make better business decisions and improve production performance by leveraging experienced production and reservoir specialists that perform integrated asset modeling, and provide continuous operations surveillance to measure, model, and interpret data.
Many mature fields that have been successfully produced now require improved recovery processes to extract their remaining value. Our consultants can help you conduct reservoir performance analyses to identify areas of bypassed oil and determine the most profitable approach to recover it, such as waterflood, steam injection, and carbon-dioxide gas injection.
In addition to providing analysis of reservoirs containing hydrocarbons, RTS teams can leverage the practical experience gained over hundreds of reservoir and production enhancement studies to enhance our customers’ understanding of their underground gas storage (UGS), carbon capture, uilization, and storage (CCUS), and geothermal reservoirs. A strong and growing track record of subsurface studies allied to energy transition, together with years of experience in geoscience, geomechanics, reservoir engineering, production technology and production chemistry place means that RTS is ideally positioned to advise on all subsurface aspects of these projects and maximize our customers’ return on investment.
