Rock-Fluid Interaction Services
Optimized completions through system interaction understanding
Gain advanced knowledge of the rock, saturating fluids, soluble minerals, and more.
Physical property and phase behavior PVT data provide the necessary information to properly manage reservoir production. Initial measurements of fluid compressibility and shrinkage factors are required to
Understanding fluid behavior in the reservoir requires viscosity, constant composition expansion, and differential liberation or constant volume depletion measurements. Fluid behavior influences both recovery and costs. Compositional analysis and the physically measured fluid properties are used as input and the basis for tuning EOS modeling software.
Separation tests simulate the gas and liquid separation of a reservoir fluid at the surface conditions. Results generated include
These data are often used in an EOS simulator to optimize separator conditions for maximization of oil production.
How the key to the future is found in the past.
The study analyzed the preferential directions of deformation and failure (i.e., anisotropic) in the shales and their time-dependent behavior in reacting with drilling fluid.
Elastic anisotropy data from plugs is combined with advanced sonic logs, enabling a more robust evaluation of the formation anisotropy to improve both stress predictions and the allowable mud-weight windows during wellbore stability assessment.
Geomechanical laboratory characterization of stacked reservoir intervals.
Key enabler for flow assurance and better metering uncertainty.
