As exploration and production companies try to understand more and more about their assets, it is evident that no single discipline can provide a full description of the reservoir characteristics. In order to create the most comprehensive reservoir understanding, an integrated reservoir model has become increasingly important. The integrated reservoir model compiles geological, geophysical, petrophysical, and engineering data into one environment, where they can be used to create the most realistic geologic model available. Halliburton Consulting offers a team of experienced geoscientists and engineers that understand how to properly integrate the geological, geophysical, petrophysical, and engineering information consistently, which is critical to the success of any modeling project. Our Reservoir Characterization team has the experience and techniques to build robust models that will be useful for both day to day field monitoring and long-term field development planning.
Petrophysics – Understanding well log measurements and properly calibrating all available data is a critical step in characterizing a reservoir. Our experienced petrophysical staff use cutting edge technology to analyze and condition well logs for optimal characterization results.
Seismic Interpretation and Attribute Analysis – Industry-leading software is leveraged to provide our customers with the most accurate interpretations and attribute analysis. Seismic attributes are important for understanding rock characteristics away from the well bore, and properly interpreted volumes are necessary to define faults and other geologic structures.
Geomodeling – A key tool for understanding reservoir behavior is the geologic model. The static model is manipulated through many possible iterations, giving customers a view of a range of reservoir scenarios. Scenario results are then statistically analyzed to focus on the most probable reservoir conditions.
Volumetrics – Volumetric reservoir calculations are determined by examining the many realizations from the reservoir simulation, and provide a range of possible values in the form of P10, P50, P90 estimates.
Whether in conventional oil and gas plays or unconventional plays, such as shale and tight gas, the Halliburton Reservoir Characterization team specializes in identifying prospects and assessing hydrocarbon potential.
