IN SOME CASES OVER 92% OF HYDROCARBONS ARE BEING LEFT BEHIND IN THE RESERVOIR.
Why does this happen?
Tight shale formations have low permeabilities and trying to extract the hydrocarbons can be a challenge under the best-case scenario. Legacy testing methods are ineffective, not repetitive and time-consuming and multi-million dollar decisions are made, based on these tests.
How can we change this?
Optimizing fluids is an area of opportunity to increase recoverable oil.
By optimizing fluids you can increase oil recovery by up to 25%.
Choosing the right fluids specific to your application produces more oil. Chemicals that work in one well, don't necessarily work in others, and blanketing one chemistry across a range of reservoirs is not an effective strategy. The alternative of not using any chemical enhancement, could mean you’re leaving money on the table.
Our platform is the solution to optimizing fluids for each individual well. Our platform rapidly screens and quantifies relative fluid performance, using reservoir analogues.
