Rock & Fluids Analysis

Characterizing source rock

Assessing and exploiting unconventional plays requires an assessment of the lateral and vertical heterogeneity of tight rocks, including porosity, permeability, inorganic and organic chemistry, and mechanical properties. Integration of these data sets allows a complete picture of both the depositional and diagenetic impacts on the rock properties for use in predictive modeling.

Improving completions

Fluid sensitivity, proppant embedment, and mechanical properties are among the tests able to be performed on both sidewall and whole core samples to determine how source rocks will perform during completion. By providing data for completion models and testing fluids prior to completion, these analyses help to derisk the completion stage.

Modeling the reservoir

Understanding the reservoir involves integrating a variety of techniques from 3D models of nanoscale features to multiwell models of rock properties. Combining mechanical, geochemical, and petrologic data from core data with wireline and seismic data provides a more complete picture of the reservoir.
