Exploration

Conventional and Unconventional

  • Source Rock: characterization, thermal maturity, organic facies, well log integration
  • Correlations: oil-oil, oil-SR (facies), gas-oil-SR, dilutants (H2S, CO2, etc.)
  • Basin Modeling (1-, 2-, 3-, 4-D) 
  • Seal specialists (top and bottom), migration pathways, paleotraps, insitu vs. migrated hydrocarbons
  • Mentoring
  • Legacy database building/maintenance
  • GIS
  • Hero well/field analysis
  • Data room evaluation
  • Prospect Generation: data room, prospect fairs, integrated risk analysis
  • Leasing Strategies
  • Country Entry/Exit
  • Risk: dilutants, charge, igneous
  • Paleotraps: identification, quantification, core expertise
  • Surface Geochemistry: land and sea

Development / Drilling

Facilities Design:

  • Water management and disposal
  • Completions
    • Optimize frac design
    • Water management
    • Inter-well communication
    • Optimize spacing

Hydrocarbon

  • Pay allocation
  • Compartmentalization (optimize well placement)
  • Depletion analysis
  • Flow assurance: proper diagnosis (wax, asphaltene, adamantanes, scale emulsions)
  • Risks (corrosion, souring)
  • Movability (vs. log inference)
  • Secondary alteration (mixing, biodegradation, phase, depletion monitoring)
  • GOR predictions (fluids, FIS)
  • Transport (rail, pipeline, truck)
  • Hazmat/dangerous goods
  • Drilling: wellsite mass spec, sampling, protocols
  • Water: management, treatment, enhanced value (e.g., lithium)
  • Refinery/pipeline feedstock
  • Knowledge gap/mentoring: team review, coach
  • Legacy database creation and maintenance (create entrance value)

Minerals / Mining

  • Legacy databases
  • Emissions (TVOC vs. PAH, nuisance smell, H2S, etc.)
  • GIS

  • Feedstock blending
  • Processing
  • Runoff
  • Corrosion

Forensics

  • Oil spill/remediation
  • Sludge
  • Stray gas (e.g., bradenhead monitoring)
  • Expert witness
  • Produced water
