Solve complex E&P problems through geochemistry

Geochemistry is key to the formation and degradation of hydrocarbons, and is key to understanding and solving problems that may arise at any stage throughout the life of a prospect. OilTracers® geoscientists integrate geochemistry into evaluation of exploration production, development, and abandonment issues.

GEOCHEMISTRY FOR EXPLORATION

Apply geochemistry to prospect evaluation

Exploration risk can be reduced through basin modeling, characterizing charge risk, identifying oil biomarkers, determining the origin of oils and condensates, and charting oil biodegradation.

GEOCHEMISTRY FOR PRODUCTION

Determine how oil and gas flow through your reservoir

Individual components of an oil or gas serve as natural tracers to track the specific source and movement of fluids within a field. These tracers form the basis for numerous oil geochemistry tools for allocating production, identifying completion problems, and solving other production issues.

GEOCHEMISTRY FOR PRODUCTION

GEOCHEMISTRY FOR FIELD DEVELOPMENT

Reduce costs and maximize hydrocarbon recovery

Operator costs are reduced when completion intervals are chosen to maximize the oil or gas quality and minimize the number of production tests needed to select those intervals. By optimizing well placement and reducing production tests, oil fingerprinting can substantially reduce development costs while maximizing hydrocarbon recovery.

GEOCHEMISTRY FOR FIELD ABANDONMENT

Assess spills or soil contamination

Geochemistry applications are valuable in the environmental aspects of field abandonment. Geochemical analyses of oil, water, and gas samples can aid in the detection of hydrocarbons in surface and near-surface environments, and can aid in the determination of the source(s) of those hydrocarbons.
