Increasingly capital intensive projects in complex, deepwater and shale environments leave minimal room for error by exploration and production operators and require more advanced technological solutions. GeoScale’s state-of-the-art dynamic modeling capabilities enable unprecedented real-time asset monitoring, evaluation, simulation and optimization.
geoSTATE – Reservoir Statics
Combining multi-scale data from geological, geomechanical, geophysical, petrophysical and engineering data, this model is the most comprehensive multi-scale framework designed for oil and gas applications in the industry. This static modeling module creates a 3D snapshot of multiple realizations of subsurface conditions and results in better operational risk assessments in complex, deepwater and shale environments.
geoMODEL – Reservoir Dynamics
This module integrates rock and fluid mechanics, leading to an improved production forecast. This dynamic simulation modeling module utilizes a series of fundamental “time-aware” capabilities to analyze pore-scale to basin-scale dynamic behavior using multi-scale formulations. Multiple scenarios with sensitivity testing are used to capture time-dependent changes in subsurface conditions due to operations and production.
geoWELLS – Well Scale
This module is used to optimize well operational parameters. Well-based applications such as drilling and frac’ing are modeled with this module by linking independently to the static, dynamic and time-lapse modules.
geoSYNCH – Time Lapse
This module is used to optimize operations for EUR. It utilizes a proprietary calibration method that uses actual time-lapse(4D) data and realizations of subsurface conditions against model predictions to continuously improve estimates of subsurface rock and fluid dynamics. This approach has been proven to be superior to conventional approaches.
The company’s technology enables seamless transition of multiphysics rock and fluid behavior analyses between length scales ranging from micrometers to kilometers and between time scales ranging from fractions of hours to years; when necessary, time range can be extended to millions of years for applications in geological history mapping and tracking.
Real-Time Asset Evaluation and Optimization
GeoScale’s software solutions can detect and track changes in production and basin data and also assimilate production data and basin properties into the evolving basin model, enabling simulations that can guide and optimize future production decisions.
Cost Savings and
- Scenario Models – What-if analyses and sensitivity testing allow clients to reduce risk associated with drilling, completion and production uncertainties and to prepare for multiple scenarios
- Portfolio Management – More accurate and detailed assessments enable operators to determine optimal selection of assets and best choice and sequence of operations
