You need a deep understanding of the Earth’s geological structure to help find and extract hydrocarbons cleanly and efficiently. Dip into global and regional technical excellence to perform comprehensive evaluations.

We know how to read the story told by the earth. Rockflow’s team of experienced geologists will perform comprehensive regional geological evaluations to help you evaluate your and support your decisions.

Regional Geology

Rockflow performs comprehensive regional geological evaluations, including:

  • regional structural and stratigraphic framework assessments
  • basin analysis, incorporating well and seismic data
  • the assessment of depositional model environments
  • reservoir architecture and property range prediction.

Exploration Play Analysis incorporates the identification and risking of plays and the play elements including Reservoir, Charge, Entrapment and Seal capacity.
Petroleum System evaluation assesses source rock maturity, models migration pathways, and identifies prospective areas from basin to licence scale, for licencing rounds and business growth opportunities.

Exploration and appraisal strategy planning

Rockflow provides technical risking of exploration portfolios, and combines technical assessments with company priorities to generate optimised exploration strategies.
The identification and quantification of key subsurface uncertainties allows appraisal programs to be designed for cost-effective risk mitigation.

Reservoir Characterisation and Modelling

Field Development Plans rely on an accurate description of the reservoir geology. This requires integration of seismic and well data to build up a robust picture of the subsurface.
Reservoir characterisation studies include:

  • depositional environment assessment
  • facies identification
  • wireline log interpretation
  • core evaluation
  • well correlation
  • identification of flow units and barriers

The integration of geological studies with petrophysical and geophysical analyses yields conceptual reservoir models which can be encapsulated in geocellular models.
3D structural, facies and rock property modelling allows comprehensive uncertainty analysis, yields volumetric ranges and provides inputs to dynamic simulation models.
The models also provide the basis for designing development strategies, and hence feed directly into Field Development Plans.

Volumes and uncertainty analysis

Rockflow Geologists undertake comprehensive uncertainty assessments on all subsurface elements of projects across the E&P cycle. This includes identification and quantification of all uncertainties to yield a suite of associated parameter ranges.

This facilitates the generation of reliable volume estimates via probabilistic and multi-scenario approaches. This in turn enables the development of optimal resource exploitation strategies, along with a full assessment of asset value and the associated risks.

In-house software

Rockflow’s in house geological software package is Petrel, a 3D geological modelling package that integrates all forms of geological data, enabling discipline experts to work together and make the best possible decisions.

Rockflow’s Geologists and consultants are experienced users of all industry standard software packages and will maximise their use.
