Petroleum Services is the world's largest and most technologically
advanced independent provider of reservoir fluid and petrophysical services to the oil
and gas industry. We provide data and services that characterize the porous reservoir
rock and all three reservoir fluids - gas, oil and water.
The data sets provided by Core Lab's Reservoir Fluids services are used by oil companies
to characterize the reservoir fluids, assist with reserve calculations and to enable
maximum oil and gas recovery from the reservoir.
Reservoir core analysis, both of the routine and advanced nature, is conducted on
the porosity and permeability of the rock to determine the reservoir storage capacity
and the ability of the fluids to flow through the rock. These measurements are used to
determine how much oil and gas are present in a reservoir and the rates at which the oil
and gas can be produced.
Our proprietary services and technologies are used to correlate the reservoir
description data to wire line logs and seismic data by determining the different acoustic
velocities of reservoir rocks containing water, oil and gas. These measurements can also be
used in conjunction with Core Lab's Reservoir Management services to develop programs to
produce more reservoir fluids from the reservoir.
