We are a team of experts with backgrounds in a range of technical disciplines. Hence we can assist you in many ways, from the proposition of a sedimentary depositional model to the evaluation of the validity of a prospect. Here are a couple of typical situations:
Instruments used for borehole image and sonic logging are usually very complex to set up and run, so in the event of critical data acquisition, we can supervise acquisition and verify authoritatively the validity of results on the spot.
It often happens that a project team gets stuck on a particular question. As an external and independent party, we can provide solutions based on previous experience in other areas. This also applies when partners in a concession disagree on models and methods to apply.
Many project teams are multidisciplinary whereas the software tools are not. We can provide ad-hoc interfaces between databases, or produce intermediate data formats for “coupling” different aspects of a reservoir model (structural, fracture, facies, stress…).
As there is no lower limit to the size of an oil company or other subsurface operator, expertise on evaluation of the validity of a geological prospect considered for acquisition may be required from an external source. Financial institutions are also often interested in this kind of advice.
