Tight Oil Reservoirs

Our experts can help analyze the potential for tight oil reservoirs by conducting a thorough analysis of all available data. We have a strong team of geophysicists, geologists, and petrophysicists who have experience in both US and international unconventional basins.

Some areas of our expertise include:

  • Geochemistry of Tight Oil Plays
  • Laboratory analyses of reservoirs: thin section petrography, SEM, CL, XRD, FITR
  • Log acquisition: LWD, MWD, Geosteering
  • Log analysis: multi-mineral models to compute phi, Sw, TOC
  • Routine and special core analysis
  • Geosteering and tools to correlate while drilling
  • LWD logging and correlations
  • Finding sweet spots
  • Mapping to aid in hydraulic fracturing success
  • Identifying natural fractures: image logs, field studies, core
  • Fracture corridors and oil production
  • Fracking and hydraulic fractures
  • Discrete Fracture Network models
  • Microseimic fracture detection and mapping
