Unconventional (Tight Oil/Gas) Development

We can help with  lifecycle unconventional developments

Unconventional resources can provide energy security at affordable price in uncertain times and political turmoil. Even in deep decarbonizing scenarios, oil demand will still be around 67 MMSTBPD. Only the  most abundant, reliable and flexible hydrocarbon sources will be competitive; only US unconventional (tight oil/gas) resources fits the bill , and we can help (see our video below)

Key Questions To Ask To Beat the Competition

  1. What are the 'Big-Rules' that can help defines your play

  2. What is the most attractive part of play to focus on drilling?

  3. Where is the sweet-spot in the play and How to characterize it?

  4. What are the reservoir and well controls on productivity?

  5. What are the most optimum well completion and fracture design?

Our Experience

We have extensive experience in unconventional shale within continental USA (Antrim Shale in Michigan,  and Eagle ford Shale in Texas) to help you with your strategy.

Our Methodology/Approach

We have an auditable approach and sound methodology to ensure success.  As soon as you acquire acreage, we can help with our 5-Step, play de-risking  approach that guarantees high productivity and consistent results:

  1. We help you develop big 'Big-Rules' for your unconventional oil or gas play

  2. The big-rules help develop 'Common Risk Segment' (CRS) map; characterizing attractiveness of areas within the play

  3. We then help develop a 'Sweet Spotting' strategy

  4. We map PI's /IP's in the play and develop integrated view of 'controls on productivity.'

  5. We then develop play specific 'well-completions' & 'fracturing design' to de-risk the play

STEP-1: BIG RULES

We help develop big rules that are for that are specific for your oil & gas play (see source rock evaluation)

STEP-2: CRS MAPPING

We help build the CRS maps for key play elements that identify and narrow the potentially attractive areas for sweet-spotting

STEP-3: SWEET-SPOTTING

We query databases and prepare map of Expected Ultimate Recovery (EUR) and Initial Potential (IP) to identify top quartile EUR/IP (sweet-spot) and relate to reservoir and maturity parameters that control the sweet spot (see Source Rock Evaluation)

STEP-4: CONTROLS ON PRODUCTIVITY

Map well Productivity Indices (PI) and/or Initial Potential and relate to various reservoir parameter that control production.
