Special Core Analysis

Contact

Core samples truly represent the ground truth in the search for oil and gas. Only by understanding the petrophysical properties, geological makeup, and geomechanical attributes of rocks will the operator realize the production potential of a reservoir and map out the best well construction scenarios for optimal field production.

Weatherford Laboratories’ array of special core analysis services goes beyond routine core analysis techniques, with a comprehensive suite of advanced tests to help operators more accurately define reservoir estimates, improve their reservoir modeling, and identify and remediate any formation damage. The end result: more informed well construction and production decisions to help optimize the long-term production and profitability of their fields.


Our array of special core analysis services goes beyond routine core analysis techniques, with a comprehensive suite of advanced tests specifically designed to assess:

• Petrophysics
• Fluid Flow Properties
• Enhanced Oil Recovery
• Formation Damage
• Rock Mechanics

These analyses help operators more accurately define reservoir estimates, improve their reservoir modeling, and identify and remediate any formation damage. The end result: more informed well construction and production decisions to help optimize the long-term production and profitability of their fields.

We have extensive experience in all areas of special core analysis, with laboratories and staff located around the world.

We have the experience and analytical tools to understand a core sample’s rock mechanics and how these translate to better well construction decisions in the field.
We deploy a wide range of formation damage laboratory test methods.
We are the industry leader in applying integrated analytical capabilities to define the feasibility of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques and compare the value of them.
We employ a full complement of both steady- and unsteady-state methods to measure relative permeability.
 


A wide variety of special core analyses ranging from petrophysics to fluid flow properties, formation damage, and rock properties all help operators more accurately define reservoir estimates, improve their reservoir modeling, and identify and remediate any formation damage. The end result is more informed well construction and production decisions to help optimize the long-term production and profitability of their fields.
