Quantitative geochemical and reservoir fluid analysis
Tailor a workflow that maximizes insight from your rock and fluid property measurements.
Understanding petroleum origin and processes controlling fluid behavior
The petroleum geochemistry domain is fundamental to understanding exploration targets and risks as well as constraining basin-scale processes and models. It also directly applies to reservoir development and production and increasingly contributes to engineering domains such as flow assurance, phase behavior (PVT), and downstream processing.
Geochemical evaluation helps assess caprock integrity, carbon storage, and other subsurface containment challenges. Knowledge of the molecular composition, origin of fluids, and postplacement processes, together with understanding of their transport properties, is key to defining fluid property variations in reservoirs and developing the optimal approach to effective recovery.
Geochemical evaluation of source rocks and generated fluids is essential in modern exploration and production activities. Source rock research has advanced to include chemical and physical characterization technologies that enable a broader understanding of complex exploration and production targets, including shale reservoirs, where conventional approaches may no longer be effective.
