Fracture Stimulation Optimization
Integrated Reservoir Solutions offers this program to aid in the enhancement of well
performance in tight gas sand reservoirs. This is a complete evaluation package that is comprised of several
components. Analyses are optimally performed on conventional cores but rotary sidewall cores or cuttings may
used or a combination of both. More information.
Rock Based Petrophysics
Incorporating rock types and their petrophysical properties from the analysis of cores, sidewall cores and cuttings
is the key to improved log interpretation. Many log analysis techniques are based on a "black box" approach. Our
approach to enhanced formation evaluation utilizes well known principles, experience developed over decades and
cutting edge technology resulting in real bottom line implications.
Seal Rock Analysis
Seals are an important, often overlooked component of the hydrocarbon system. Knowing the entry pressure of the seal
rock and the hydrocarbon-brine interfacial tension, the hydrocarbon column height can be accurately predicted. With
additional information on reservoir saturation and capillary pressure, up dip and down dip limits on the reservoir
can be inferred. More information.
Our geological staff provides expert reservoir characterization through reservoir description, petrographic analyses
and sedimentological studies. Factors controlling reservoir quality and performance are identified and scaled upward
from the microscopic scale, to the zone of interest, to the well bore, to regional setting.
Completions and Stimulations
The engineering staff uses analyses of rock-fluid compatibility, flow back efficiency, regained permeability, proppant
embedment properties, and geomechanical laboratory testing to provide evaluation of borehole stability and recommendations
for completions and fracture stimulation optimization.
Simulations and Production Forecasting
The most recent and updated software is used with input data from the laboratories reservoir simulations/models and
