Lowering finding costs is critically important for any E&P company, and maximizing production from existing reservoirs is
generally recognized as the most cost-effective way to achieve this goal.
The Reservoir Management business segment focuses on specialized projects to help Core Laboratories’ clients optimize their oil
and gas exploration and exploitation programs. An example is our Tight Gas Sand Fracture Stimulation and Optimization Program (A
Systematic Approach to Improved Well Performance). This is a complete evaluation package that profiles the geological, petrophysical,
and geomechanical properties of tight gas sand reservoirs to enhance well performance.
Increasingly, operators are recognizing that cost effective, real-time, permanent well monitoring systems enable them to “see” how
their reservoirs are performing and are critical to the successful implementation of any reservoir management, production enhancement,
or enhanced oil recovery (EOR) project.
Core Laboratories makes continuous real-time measurements of reservoir temperature, pressure, and flow. Our permanent downhole
monitoring systems provide our customers with “eyes to the reservoir” to improve well productivity, reduce operating costs, and
understand reservoir performance on a real-time basis. Our unique surface and downhole instrumentation systems are designed to
be reliable, flexible, and easy to use – whatever the application.
While accurate data generation is important, understanding how to use the data is critical. Core Laboratories are experts at generating,
compiling, and interpreting reservoir data. Through regional geological and petrophysical studies that integrate detailed seismic,
geological, petrophysical, and well production information, we provide you with a multi-disciplinary approach to complete reservoir
And to help you manage your field optimally, Core Laboratories offers integrated teams of engineers, geologists, petrophysicists, and
geophysicists to apply our unparalleled knowledge of reservoir systems and our proprietary completion and production enhancement techniques
to reservoir management projects worldwide.
