TOOLS AT OUR DISPOSAL
Our well-equipped laboratories provide a comprehensive, cost -effective
analytical service to the petroleum exploration industry. Our professional
staff have over 25 years experience and are considered specialists in
their field. We provide a complete analytical service in organic geochemistry
for exploration and production companies, worldwide. These services extend
to environmental monitoring and the determination of the source of gases
using stable carbon and hydrogen isotopes.
ANALYSIS: Industry-standard analyses (TOC,RE)
are offered along with the more specialised gas, gasoline and oil analyses.
High-resolution GC-MS and stable isotope
PRODUCTION GEOCHEMISTRY: Gas, gasoline and high-resolution GC, GC-MS
and isotope analyses applied to reservoir continuity studies.
STUDIES: Field collection of rock, oil and gas seepages. Experience
in leading field trips in the search for oil and gas. Provision of geochemical
AND REPORTING: Geochemical data, whether generated in-house, or from
other sources can be interpreted and integrated with any other geological
data to produce reports tailored to the clients' requirements.
BASIN MODELLING: Illustrating the effect of overpressure on the
vitrinite reflectance as observed in geological basins as modelled in
the PresRo model. The data shows that at 250oC the vitrinite reflectance
will be >3% Ro (red minor gas generation), whereas the effect of 8000
psi of overpressure at 250oC is to retard the vitrinite reflectance such
that it still remains in the oil window (green).
