Core Analysis provides the only direct and quantitative measure of hydrocarbon reservoirs properties, yet we estimate that around 70% of core data is unfit for purpose, substantially increasing uncertainty in reservoir characterisation. However, with proper planning and management of the coring and core analysis processes, core data should be and can be the ground truth for formation evaluation.
We at LR, are experts in deriving value from investment in reservoir analysis testing, by reducing uncertainty through quality assured and quality controlled, interpreted core analysis data sets for Upstream Oil and Gas operators reviewing or developing reservoir static and dynamic models.
What we offer
We provide a fully independent management framework that encompasses all aspects of Core Analysis, from coring and core handling, through quality assurance, control and interpretation of routine (RCA-CCA), special (SCAL) and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) laboratory testing programmes. Our experience and expertise in Core Analysis provides innovative and fit for purpose Core Analysis testing programmes, fully quality assured, quality controlled and traceable databases as an input to static and dynamic reservoir models, safe core tripping out schedules and comprehensive legacy data reviews.
What are the benefits?
- Maximised value from investment in reservoir analysis testing
- Reduced cost of core analysis programmes
- Identification and mitigation of risks
- Reduced uncertainty
- Hassle free, fully independent core analysis expertise
