Basin and play analysis

Studies are performed by a technical team with over 50 years of cumulative experience in domestic and international geological and geophysical exploration, using state of the art interpretation and analytics software.



Reservoir Evaluation

  • Building integrated geological model
  • Porosity and saturation estimation
  • Reservoir quality evaluation
  • Resource quantification
  • Geologic support for Corporate and Property evaluations
  • Geological Support for Abandonment Studies

All available information is integrated to quantitatively and qualitatively characterize the reservoir, that may include:

  • Petrophysical analysis of well logs
  • Petrographical descriptions of cores and cuttings
  • Porosity and permeability, SCAL data
  • Reservoir fluid saturation and composition
  • Thermal maturity, TOC, Rock-Eval data
  • Production tests, DST and Bottomhole test results
  • Integration of seismic data


Prospect Generation

  • Outlining reservoir extent and quality based on seismic data, well logs and production history
  • Identifying opportunities and bypassed pay
  • Uncertainty assessment, risk vs opportunity
  • Reservoir engineering (EOR potential, reserve and resource evaluation)
  • Field development and well planning


Basin Analytics

Our team provides basin and play analytic geoscience studies, both exclusive and multi-client case studies, for Canadian, US (Lower 48) and international areas.

  • Key horizon GG&E interpretation with grids as required
  • Integration of key play data
  • EUR and cost analysis
  • Regional analysis of development and exploration upside identification
  • Statistical relationship of technical and financial performance



Log Analysis and reservoir characterisation

  • Petrophysical log analysis and interpretation
  • Integration of conventional, MWD log data and special core analysis
  • Integration of mud log and core, cutting data
  • Petrophysical calculations including Vsh, SW, Porosity, Permeability, lithology, TOC, elasticity, facies
