Deepwater Flow Testing

Determine properties at reservoir scale

Testing services, downhole or at the surface, provide crucial answers concerning productivity, fluid properties, composition, flow, pressure, and temperature.

Well testing provides crucial answers to reservoir questions

Downhole acquisition of representative fluid samples and accurate pressure measurements provides information needed to make decisions on facility and infrastructure design, and may offer an understanding of potential pressure changes within the reservoir during the life of the field.

The best way to determine properties at reservoir scale remains well testing, i.e., bringing hydrocarbons to surface, separating oil, gas, and water, and disposing of the resulting fluids in an environmentally responsible manner. Seismic data assists in determining reservoir scale and connected volumes, but less so regarding permeability. Well testing is a significant operation which requires extensive planning, even as a contingency.
