Micp typical data on small samples

MICP – typical data on small samples

  • Clay destruction/texture alteration

    • pore volume increases during the test

    • distorted Pc curves


Micp curves then

Irreducible water saturation swirr

Irreducible water saturation, Swirr


New core acquisition

New core acquisition

  • What core analysis tests do we need?

    • don’t pick tests from a menu

    • review legacy data for uncertainties & gaps

  • Is the contractor interpretation correct?

    • “raw” data needed to check and verify

  • Can operators improve on the lab interpretation?

    • “end users must not abdicate their responsibility for the interpretation of core data”


Planning for core analysis

Planning for core analysis

  • Well operations

    • core bit, mud, tracers, preservation

    • core handling and stabilisation

  • Stage analysis program

    • to suit business needs

    • flexibility in-built


Improved project management

Project team

The lab is part of the team!

Single operator focal point

Real time quality control

Improved documentation

test specifications & reporting

invaluable in unitisation

Key Personnel

Drillers/well operations

Wellsite geologists

Mud engineers

Company geologists

Company petrophysicists

Coring company

Core analysis vendor

Improved project management


Improved core analysis management

Improved core analysis management

  • Better core

  • Coherent and consistent core analysis

  • Added value

    • data redundancy less than 10%

  • Labs more involved and aligned with stakeholder objectives

  • Full data audit trail

    • better equity and unitisation positions

  • Less uncertainty in reservoir models
