Schlumberger petrotechnical services combines geophysical and geological data interpretation with real-time services using proprietary software that enhances reservoir characterization, drilling, and production operations. By employing leading experts in consulting services for reservoir characterization, interpretation, multidisciplinary reservoir and production solutions, geomechanics studies, rapid evaluations, and field-development planning, all tightly integrated with Schlumberger research, technology, software, and information services, we help operators transform data into informed business decisions to maximize asset value.
Schlumberger petrotechnical experts extract the most actionable information from your seismic dataset. Using integrated workflows that include specialized processing, inversion, and interpretation, we can evaluate and describe your reservoir and predict its changes over time.
Seismic inversion uses calibrated information from wells to extract formation properties from seismic data. The resulting datasets offer information about thickness, density, and shear and compressional velocity, allowing calculation of petrophysical properties, which is key to assessing the value of a prospect. Schlumberger petrotechnical services workflows and expertise help optimize mud weight profiles, reduce drilling risks, and choose the best casing point locations to improve wellbore trajectory planning.
Schlumberger petrotechnical services process and interpret walkaway and 2D vertical seismic profile data to model even the most challenging subsalt or fractured formations. Proprietary algorithms are used to solve the challenges of detecting salt boundaries and of resolving fracture patterns and connectivity. Advances in seismic processing provide better formation models that can be used to target the often bountiful resources trapped inside.
Petrotechnical experts working collaboratively can monitor, process, and interpret microseismic events during changing reservoir stress states, such as during hydraulic fracturing. Schlumberger petrotechnical services includes microseismic detection and location, uncertainty analysis, data integration, and visualization for interpretation. The processed data can be used to improve the results of stimulation as well as for fault mapping, reservoir imaging, waterflood monitoring, and more.
Petrotechnical services’ seismic-derived earth models include lithology, pay, porosity, and fluids in place. Seismic-while-drilling services provide the means to seamlessly update these models. Updated models can improve the current well placement operation and provide valuable information for future development.
Crucial information for reservoir characterization, including model calibration and reservoir feature imaging.
A fully integrated suite of services provides accurate reservoir property prediction, from exploration through production management.
